NStar postpones herbicide plan | CapeCodOnline.com
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Responding to criticism from Eastham residents and a letter from two Cape legislators, NStar has postponed its planned use of herbicides to clear land under its main power lines on the Cape.

The power company has agreed to hold a public hearing in which it plans to make its case for using herbicides instead of clear-cutting the area with a large mower.

"We've been asked to make sure that residents are aware of our plans, and we've agreed to hold an information session," NStar spokesman Michael Durand said yesterday, though no date has been set for the meeting.
Their herbicide menu included at the above site.

I applaud them for seeking the input of the public and for searching for the best solution.
