Adams Electric Monday said it plans to start patrolling its overhead distribution lines and equipment this week in portions of lower Cumberland County and upper Franklin County that are served by the cooperative.
Weather permitting, the aerial inspections will continue until the process is also completed in Adams and York counties.
According to Mike Feathers, operations coordinator, the crew will fly an average of six to eight hours a day on weekdays, when weather conditions are appropriate, until all areas have been reviewed.
The cooperative has contracted with Pine Bottom Aviation of Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, to conduct inspections that will begin each day about 8:30 a.m.
The helicopter crew will try to avoid flying over congested areas and hovering over agricultural operations.
