The Sodeman Road Station Project is a proposed 115/13.2 kilovolt (kV) substation in the Town of Milton, NY in Saratoga County. This area is continuously growing and increased demands are being placed on an aging electrical system. The Project would resolve current issues with neighboring substations: Ballston, Brook Road and Rock City Falls. The Project team is currently working on the design of the Sodeman Road substation, which would allow for the retirement of the Rock City Falls Station.

During the vegetation clearing phase of the Sodeman Road Substation Project, National Grid will employ a variety of Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) techniques. Mechanical clearing, hand cutting, mowing and selective herbicide applications are a few examples of such techniques. This work will be conducted by NYS Department of Conservation-licensed contractors in site specific locations prescribed by the National Grid Forestry staff. The herbicide application – as part of a planned IVM program – will enable National Grid to create stable, low-growing plant communities that require minimal maintenance. The labels for each of the herbicides to be used can be found below.
