Chelan County PUD Conducts Helicopter Surveys


WENATCHEE- Beginning today and lasting for several days, the Chelan County PUD will be conducting high-tech aerial surveys of area transmission lines.

The helicopter flights will cover lines in the upper Wenatchee Valley between Cashmere and Lake Wenatchee followed by flights over Lake Chelan to Manson.

Crews on the flights will take pictures and gather information to help PUD engineers maintain reliable electric service to the county. The aerial surveys could take up to two weeks to complete and the helicopters will fly twice along each transmission line.
