Mon Power is alerting the public that it will be performing spring routine aerial patrols on transmission lines, tentatively starting Wednesday, May 8, according to Mon Power.

Mon Power officials said the "upcoming patrols will include all of the 138 kV and 69 kV lines, these are typically lines on two-pole wood structures." The larger voltage, 500 kV lines were patrolled earlier this year, according to Mon Power.

Officials said the inspections are expected to take approximately 10 to 12 days, weather permitting and said that the helicopter will be flying slowly along the lines.
