JCP&L to Conduct Aerial Inspections in Summit
A helicopter will be flying near power lines during an inspection period that starts Tuesday and runs through Aug. 20.
The following information appears on the City of Summit website:
VEGETATION MANAGEMENT AERIAL PATROL - 8/14 THRU 8/20
Patrols consist of Transmission Forestry Supervision personnel that accompanies the pilot in order to identify effectiveness of prior year's herbicide application and identification of any conditions warranting further inspection from the ground and/or corrective action.
Haverfield Co. will be conducting the inspections on all JCP&L Transmission Lines, expecting a beginning date of 8/14/2012 through 8/20/2012, weather permitting.
The helicopter will be flying at a speed of about 35-40 mph above or alongside the lines, and may circle around for a closer inspection. The helicopter is Tail # N555JC-Grey with a black bottom & stripe.
