UPDATE: PG&E’s 2018 Community Wildfire Safety Program Reconductoring Projects

Please direct questions to PG&E   1-800-743-5000

PG&E contractors have been redirected to Redding to assist with emergency work related to the California Wildfires. In progress projects have been put on hold until the state emergencies have been stabilized. The City of Mill Valley thanks PG&E and its contractors for their service and looks forward to their safe return.

Vegetation management work continues through summer and fall at locations throughout Mill Valley. The work will be completed by PG&E crews, and subcontractors, including Davey Resource Group. Crews will be trimming vegetation, including trees and shrubs near power lines, poles and in areas determined to be fire access routes for vehicles and fire crews. Residents in affected areas should receive information from PG&E via phone, mail, and/or doorhanger prior to work, and should look for updates. Please note that in some cases, trimming or removal of trees or shrubs on private property may be necessary to ensure wildfire safety. PG&E will contact property owners prior to any work on their property.

PG&E has four significant reconductoring projects scheduled for Mill Valley this summer. These projects will provide safer electrical wiring and components on overhead lines. Vegetation management is scheduled prior to reconductoring in the following locations:
