Hydro-Québec’s works in the Township of Potton
The Municipality of the Township of Potton would like to inform its citizens that arboricultural works will be carried out over the next few months by Hydro-Québec near the electrical network in the various sectors of the municipalities of Bolton-Est, Eastman, Hatley, Potton, Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton, Stanstead and Stukely-Sud.
Hydro-Québec must clear the wires and maintain the vegetation at a safe distance from the electricity distribution network.
It is dangerous to approach the power grid. Only employees of Hydro-Québec are authorized to intervene within three meters of the electrical wires. You should never attempt to prune or cut yourself a tree near the power lines.
For more information on trees that can be planted near the network, control of vegetation at Hydro-Québec or to apply for work on trees near the power grid, visit the Hydro-Québec website at
