PG&E Crews Will be Inspecting Lines Soon; They May Be Accessing Private Property
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) crews are conducting routine inspections on foot along routes of electrical transmission lines in Humboldt County. PG&E or contract crews may need to access private property to complete these inspections. Depending on the terrain, the use of unmarked all-terrain vehicles may also be needed.
Crews will patrol and access a 5-mile and 30-mile transmission line that runs within and between the rural areas of Eureka and Bridgeville through January.
Additional inspections on three other lines in Humboldt County will begin on January 25 and run through February. Those inspections will be along transmission lines through the areas of Rio Dell, Scotia and Fortuna.
These inspections will help PG&E maintain and improve the overall electric system reliability for the communities served in Humboldt County. Weather and other factors affecting safe working conditions may impact the work schedule.
Whenever possible, our crew members will introduce themselves at your location and answer any questions you may have about the inspections. PG&E employees and contractors always carry photo identification cards and are happy to present them to you upon request.
