The damage we’re seeing is significant, and includes both broken poles and downed wires. We have 1,000 Ameren Missouri personnel dedicated to restoring service, with more help on the way – 300+ additional linemen and support personnel from across the Midwest are arriving today. Some of our crews are Public Safety Advisors, stationed at downed live wires to advise people to stay safe. We ask everyone stay away from downed tree limbs and other debris. It may be hiding a power line. Do not attempt to remove any brush or trees – they could be entangled in power lines brought down by the storm. Report downed lines and power outages to 1-800-552-7583.
Crews will continue to work twenty-four hours a day until service is restored to all customers. We are fully dedicated to restoring service as quickly and safely as possible.

Ameren’s system is built to meet National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) standards, meaning we could sustain wind speed of near 90 mph for structures greater than 60 ft. above ground and 60 mph for structures shorter than 60 ft. above the ground with no ice.
Ameren Missouri utilizes Quantum Weather, a one-of-a-kind, state-wide weather monitoring system linked to Saint Louis University’s department of meteorology that provides predictions of severe weather hours in advance.
Ameren Missouri trims an average of 4,000 miles of power lines each year. That equates to about half a million trees per year. Tree trimmers work year-round throughout our Missouri service territory pruning or removing trees that threaten power lines. Trees are maintained on four and six-year cycles. Tree trimming is an important part of maintaining service reliability for our customers, especially during times of serve weather, when trees and large branches can come in contact with power lines and equipment. Ameren’s contractors are nationally recognized and follow internationally recognized pruning standards.

Upcoming Vegetation Activities
Notification from Ameren
In Ameren Missouri’s continuing effort to deliver safe and reliable power, it is necessary to manage the vegetation along and under their Transmission lines to prevent trees from contacting the wires. The Transmission system is the very high voltage lines that carry the flow of electricity from power plants to customer load centers and also which carry electricity across the country.
In the near future, crews working for Ameren Missouri will start managing vegetation that might affect transmission power lines. All property owners along these transmission lines will be receiving notification even though some may not be Ameren Missouri customers. Since the timing of this work is very dependent on vegetation growth and weather, it is hard to predict exactly when they will be on your property. It may be several months before they begin and complete the vegetation work in your area.
Increased tree trimming and removals are part of Ameren Missouri’s initiative to improve service reliability. Tree trimming is an important part of Ameren Missouri’s maintenance process and is a high priority for them. While trees are not the sole reason for outages, they can be a very big factor, particularly during extreme weather. Also, because the Transmission lines have significance to the entire United States, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has adopted a national standard that also requires Ameren to manage trees and vegetation on transmission rights-of-way. For both reasons, they are diligently managing vegetation throughout their transmission system.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your trees or Ameren Missouri’s service, please contact them at 1.800.552.7583 or visit their website at www.ameren.com/transmission. They would like to hear from you.
