PG&E Doing Inspections With ATV’s and on Foot
Press release from PG&E:
Today, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will begin routine inspections on foot along an electric transmission line that runs from Bridgeville up to Eureka eastward toward Trinity County. PG&E contract crews may need to access private property along 65 miles of the line in order to complete the inspections. Because of the terrain, the use of unmarked all-terrain vehicles will be used.
These inspections will help PG&E maintain and improve the overall electric system reliability for its customers in Humboldt County. Foot patrols will occur seven days a week between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. However, weather and other factors may impact the work schedule.
Whenever possible, crew members will introduce themselves at residents’ locations and answer any questions residents may have about the inspections. PG&E contractors will be wearing safety vests, most likely orange and yellow, and always carry photo identification cards.
PG&E vehicles, contractor vehicles and ATV’s will have placards on dashboards (pictured below). If you have any questions about personnel on your property or want to check for PG&E’s presence in your community, please call at 1-800-743-5000.
