Hello Livonia. DTE was active in your community last week doing tree trim work on Mayfield Street near Grant Elementary School. The job resulted in a brief outage in the nearby neighborhoods along Plymouth Rd. This is a common practice when tree trimming called ‘deenergizing the lines’ for the safety of those working. Our team quickly and safely had power restored by noon. The great news here is that fewer tree limbs near these lines should mean less risk of outages for the neighborhood in the future.
You may see more of our crews in the coming months as part of our accelerated electric reliability projects in your area, including more tree trimming and infrastructure updates. All these projects are underway to improve your service and reliability for the short- and long term.
Make sure to regularly check the Livonia community page to learn more about what’s going on in your neighborhood. You can also follow DTE on Facebook and Twitter for even more updates and information.
