Residents may see a helicopter flying low and slowly along PUD transmission lines Thursday and Friday.
The flights will follow power lines east of Fancher Heights to Rock Island, then across the Columbia River near Alcoa and Palisades.
Crew on the flights will conduct a detailed inspection of the lines and equipment with high-definition video. Jim Caldwell, senior transmission system engineer, said the information is part of Chelan PUD’s ongoing efforts to utilize new technologies for evaluating the condition of transmission lines and to help maintain reliable operation of the power system.
