New Electricity Transmission Lines in Connecticut Strung by Helicopter
Connecticut Light and Power is stringing new transmission lines in the Waterford area this week, but instead of the usual method of stringing the cable from the ground, helicopters will swoop down and do the job.
Joining us to talk about this is Frank Poirot, a spokesman for CL&P's parent company, Northeast Utilities.
A release from CL&P states that the helicopter method saves time, and Poirot added that it also spares the surrounding natural environment from some wear and tear.
Flights were scheduled for Monday and Wednesday this week, depending on the weather.
