Vegetation Management Aerial Patrol
Please be advised that the Haverfield Co. will be conducting JCP&L's Annual Supervisory Vegetation Management Aerial Patrol. These inspections are scheduled during the April through September time frame on an annual basis and cover all transmission facilities system-wide. 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 pilot will be in communication with any local Airports when in their airspace. 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.
