Riviera Utilities goal is to provide safe and reliable utility service to our customers and the communities we serve. These services are supplied through a well-maintained delivery system. An integral part of that system is our Vegetation Management program. Trees and vegetation play an important role in our daily lives and the beauty of our communities. If left alone near utilities, they can create hazardous situations and cause major service interruptions. Riviera Utilities' Vegetation Management Department manages over 1000 miles of electric, natural gas, water, wastewater, and cable TV right-of-ways and 90 properties associated with those utilities.
In an effort to improve safety, reliability, and accessibility, we have adopted a Vegetation Management Policy to clear and maintain "safety maintenance zones" around all Riviera Utilities' equipment. Our program is based on industry-wide best management practices and is supported by years of research from leading vegetation management experts and arboricultural organizations. The plan includes various combinations of tree pruning, tree removals, brush cutting, mowing, and herbicide application. At Riviera Utilities, we are proud to serve South Baldwin County and look forward to delivering you safe and reliable utility service for years to come.
