ITC to conduct aerial patrols in June

In Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency, and Presque Isle counties, ITC will be conducting aerial patrols of the high-voltage transmission structures and lines between June 21 and 26, weather permitting.

Other inspections throughout the state will be seen from May 28 to June 26.

The patrols are a North American Electrical Reliability Corporation requirement for ITC’s vegetation management program, support proactive maintenance objectives, and are in line with the company’s model for operational excellence.

During the inspections, flights are often conducted at low altitudes to allow accurate visuals, so there is no cause for alarm if a low-flying helicopter is sighted near transmission lines.
