Liberty Utilities begins annual aerial inspection

Liberty Utilities will begin its annual aerial inspection of Company transmission lines and substations this week.

This inspection is expected to run Tuesday, August 20, through Friday, August 30; however, the length of the program is dependent upon weather and wind conditions. The helicopter tail number will be N306PH.

The aerial inspection process uses a low-flying helicopter to survey approximately 1,300 miles of transmission line throughout Liberty’s local electric service territory.

The survey focuses on identifying potential problems with transmission structures, hardware, conductors, and vegetation. The process uses a high-resolution infrared imaging system to detect potential equipment issues that may go undetected in a typical visual inspection.

According to Jason Grossman, Manager of T & D Vegetation, “Our annual aerial inspection is a fast and efficient way to prevent potential service interruptions. Performing this inspection is part of our continuous commitment to keep power safe and reliable for our customers.”

Liberty Utilities Co. owns and operates regulated water, wastewater, natural gas and electric transmission and distribution utilities in 12 states, delivering responsive and reliable essential services to nearly 780,000 customers across the United States.
