If you see a helicopter flying over Atkinson, Plaistow and Sandown Thursday, it is Eversource reviewing the utility’s transmission right-of-way system.
Depending on weather, Eversource plans to use infrared cameras to identify faulty equipment requiring replacement. Aerial patrols begin at 8 a.m., Thursday, and continue daily through Friday, Feb. 17. Flight routes and areas will be determined by weather conditions, the company said.
The company said the work is part of regular maintenance and not related to the Northern Pass electric line project.
Residents may expect to see a yellow and blue Bell Jet Ranger aircraft.
