PG&E to Conduct Power Line Inspections by Helicopter in Amador and Calaveras Counties

Stockton, CA...Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be inspecting power lines in Amador and Calaveras counties on June 4 and 5, using helicopters equipped with Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology. The inspections are part of PG&E’s expanded and enhanced vegetation management work, implemented following the 2017 and 2018 wildfires as one of many additional precautionary measures intended to further reduce wildfire risk.




In addition to ground inspections, the LiDAR helicopter inspections will help gather data to allow PG&E to identify hazardous trees that have the potential to fall into the lines. These inspections will take place across the approximately 25,200 miles of distribution lines in locations that have been designated as at elevated or extreme risk of wildfire based on the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) High Fire-Threat District Map. The data gathered will supplement PG&E’s ground inspections by capturing imagery that can be analyzed to take measurements, reveal patterns and identify any potential risks.

A Bell 407 Helicopter will be leaving from the PG&E Angels Camp Service Center at 7 a.m. flying in the areas of Valley Springs, Burson, San Andreas, Wallace, Camanche Reservoir on Tuesday and in the areas of Ione, Plymouth, Sutter Creek, Amador City and Fiddletown on Wednesday.


Helicopters will be flying along the power lines at an altitude of about 300 to 500 feet. PG&E will be making automated phone calls to notify residents ahead of the scheduled helicopter flight in their community.

For more information on the helicopter inspections, residents can visit pge.com/enhancedveg or email PG&E at wildfiresafety@pge.com with questions about this work.

Community Wildfire Safety Program

PG&E’s Community Wildfire Safety Program involves increasing real-time monitoring and intelligence capabilities, putting in place new and enhanced safety measures, and strengthening the resiliency of the electric grid to further reduce wildfire threats. More information can be found at pge.com/wildfiresafety.

    Inadequate Clearances

    The PG&E power line clearances are inadequate. 12 feet as per PG&E regulations the right of way foresters are marking trees for are again grossly inadequate. PG&E is extremely negligent and bauses fires and deaths from their negligence.

      Well snowflake you have made your statement. Always blame big business. PG&E in my humble opinion is an excellent utility.
