Kankakee Valley REMC's right-of-way spraying began late July and will run to early August. Contract crews will be working in the following areas (also shown on the map).
Lake County: All areas served by KV REMC;
Porter County: Union, Center, Washington, Porter, Morgan, Boone, and Pleasant townships;
LaPorte County: Western portions of Cass and Dewey townships.
The Daltons, Inc will be performing brush and small woody-plant chemical vegetation control in these areas for KV REMC. The Daltons is fully licensed and certified to do this work by the Indiana State Chemist.
During the spray operation, The Daltons will take care to avoid sensitive areas (such as front yards, tree plantations, ornamental planting crops, gardens, lakes and streams) adjacent to the right-of-way.
If you would prefer to maintain the right-of-way adjacent to your land in another way, such as mowing, please do these things.
-Post a sign on the right-of-way at each end of your property that reads: "NO --SPRAYING." Make sure it's legible and visible from the roadway.
-Make sure all brush is removed within that site by July 13, and the site continues to be maintained. If the brush is not removed, it must be treated as part of the management program.
-Call The Daltons, 574-267-7511, with your questions and/or concerns with this right-of-way spraying operation.
