Helicopter Patrols Power Line
Beginning at 1:00 today, January 27 a helicopter will patrol the City's power line from Lithia Park up to the Water Treatment Plan. City of Ashland lineman will be aboard to help determine the readiness of the overhead line to serve as a backup source of power to the Water Treatment Plant. The helicopter is expected to be in the area for approximately one hour.
The overhead route to the Water Treatment Plant traverses rugged hills and is dense with poison oak making vehicle or foot surveying impossible.
