Greater Shepparton City Council advises that powerline pruning of street trees in the declared Powercor area of Shepparton, Mooroopna and Tatura is currently being undertaken.
The Council works are due to be completed by the end of November.
These works are part of Greater Shepparton City Council’s Electric Line Clearance Management Plan approved by Energy safe Victoria and complies with the Electricity Safety (Electric Line Clearance) regulations 2015.
“In the interests of public safety we have been pruning trees under powerlines for many years,” Council Manager Parks, Sport and Recreation Tim Zak said.
“Contractors working on behalf of Powercor are also pruning private trees near powerlines in all areas of Greater Shepparton, including small towns.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and remind the public these works are necessary under our Electric Line Clearance Management Plan.”
