Lincoln, Wayne

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS – manage vegetation


To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power Company plans to manage vegetation along the Midkiff-Four Mile Creek Road portion of its 34 kV distribution system in Lincoln and Wayne County, WV.  On or about January 4th, 2022, a helicopter will begin trimming trees away from power lines.  A ground crew will follow up to remove tree trimmings from streams, roads and maintained areas.  In unmaintained or undeveloped areas, trimmings will remain on site so as to minimize soil disturbance and to promote biodegradation.


Rights-of-way in this area expected to be involved in the program are: Rt. 37/East Lynn Rd., Dorie Dalton Hollow, Dry Branch, Right Fork Lick Creek, McChrotty Fork/Ten Mile Ridge Rd., McClarity Fork Rd., Falls Branch, Azalea Rd, Kentuck Fork, Four Mile Creek Rd., Watson Branch, Farmington Rd, Upper Beechfork, Right Fork of Beechfork: Shingles Branch, Clay Branch/Penson Branch, Morrison Branch, Asbury Cemetery Rd., Creed Branch, Wolfpen and Elkins Branch.


Company representatives will be present at the time of the aerial saw work.  Specifics regarding your property may be discussed at that time.  If you are a nonresident property owner and have questions regarding our right-of-way maintenance, they may be directed to:
