PG&E to Patrol Remote Greenville Area by Helicopter

Feather Publishing
10/25/2011

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be conducting low-level helicopter patrols next Thursday and Friday to inspect electric distribution lines for maintenance in rural and remote areas near Greenville in Plumas County.

A helicopter will fly at approximately 250 to 300 feet, depending on the area and if livestock are present. Helicopter patrols are usually done in rural areas where power lines are not close enough to roads to patrol by vehicle or foot. PG&E patrols remote power lines by helicopter as part of its continuing effort to ensure safety and reliability of its electric system.

PG&E will patrol by air from about 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.

The patrol will identify sagging lines, potentially hazardous trees, vegetation overgrowth, potential fire hazards and other problems. Issues identified from these patrols will be corrected to ensure system safety and reliability going forward. Crews are patrolling ahead of storm season to allow time for needed repairs.
