Low-flying helicopters are set to patrol Tampa Electric’s transmission poles and towers. Here’s when to look for them.
Greater Brandon and Hillsborough County residents need not worry about low-flying helicopters they are likely to see over the next 30 days hovering around Tampa Electric transmission poles and towers. According to TECO officials, it's all part of the company's ongoing inspection of transmission equipment. Work is set to begin 8 a.m. today, Monday, Jan. 28, and continue for about 30 days during daylight hours. Crews reportedly will survey about 5,200 transmission structures, representing approximately 23 percent of the transmission system. Haverfield Aviation, out of Gettysburg, Pa., will conduct the inspections. ______________ TECO Inspection Schedule ______________ TECO Inspection Notes
