I&M Power to conduct aerial inspections of its high-voltage lines in Michiana

Indiana Michigan Power will conduct aerial inspections of its high-voltage lines in Michiana this week.

The purpose of the inspections is to maintain the reliability of the electric transmission system, the utility stated.

The approximate inspection dates are:
South Bend/ North Central Indiana: Aug. 13-18 and Aug. 27-31

The aircraft, a black Bell Jet Ranger N105JD helicopter, will fly about 50-100 feet above the lines at a speed of 40-45 mph, covering about 350 miles each day.

During inspections, helicopters may need to circle a single structure/area several times to check the condition of electrical equipment.

Flights are scheduled to occur from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weather delays could alter flight schedules by a day or two in each area.

Customers with questions or concerns about aerial inspections should contact I&M at 800-311-4634.
