PG&E Launches Expanded Debris Management Program

PG&E Launches Expanded Debris Management Program

As debris piles up from dead trees killed by drought and bark beetle infestation, Pacific Gas and Electric Company has launched and expanded debris management program. PG&E is offering the expanded debris removal program to customers in 10 counties including Amador, Calaveras Tuolumne and El Dorado. PG&E is planning to remove approximately 160,000 dead or dying trees in its service area this year as part of its drought emergency response program. The expanded debris management program is still available to customers with dead or dying trees impacted by drought and/or bark beetle that could contact PG&E electrical facilities in a ten county area. Customers can request PG&E’s assistance in hauling away larger woody debris from property at no cost. The utility only will dispose of debris that it takes down and must be reasonably accessible by equipment/machinery; and debris must be within 100 feet of permanent structures or within 20 feet of serviceable roadways. Customers who are interested in utilizing the expanded debris management program should contact PG&E for more details at 1-800-743-5000.
