Town of Buena Vista news

Recently, representatives from SDCEA met with the Town of Buena Vista tree board to discuss important matters surrounding the safety of our community. The focus of the conversation centered on mitigating vegetation fire risks along SDCEA electric lines, which will not only help prevent fires, but will also help reduce outages and make our community safer for all.

Mitigation crews are not currently working in the town of Buena Vista. We recognize prior to any work in this regard, we need to develop a BV-specific plan that takes into consideration the input of residents, the town, the tree board and other affected stakeholders. This will take time and is in the very beginning stages. As we begin to develop the plan, we will reach out for input to work together. Please note, the mitigation plan would apply to the larger SDCEA distribution lines in town and not every service line to every residence.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time. We are here to listen and work together towards a constructive, cooperative solution. Thank you for your attention and support.
