Unitil’s electric service will be spraying chemical herbicide around 6.7 miles of off-road power lines in north Concord next month, and adjoining property owners have the option of declining their use if they have concerns about drinking water or environmentally sensitive areas.
The program is expected to start Oct. 7, and will cover two stretches of what are known as sub-transmission lines. One section runs parallel to I-93, starting near the I-393 interchange, and the other is similar but slightly farther west. They run mostly through wooded areas, not along roads.
