I have information to share about opting out of having your property sprayed with herbicides under your power lines. Herbicide spraying by the power companies is a huge problem. It is cost effective for them, but not cost effective for our communities, when we consider the impact on our groundwater, wildlife, companion animals, not to mention our children playing in freshly sprayed areas and our very health. The sprayers do not announce their arrival. It just happens. It alarmed and outraged me when I discovered a few months ago that landowners in N.C. and elsewhere are not legally recognized as having the right to refuse herbicide spraying on their property.
