12/03/2004 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) advises its customers that an annual helicopter survey of the Transmission line will be conducted December 7, 8, and 9th, along U.S. Highway 1, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on said dates.

The purpose of this annual survey is to perform visual inspection of poles, hardware, lines, and insulators on the Transmission line between Key West and Marathon. The results of this survey will help in the scheduling of repairs, if needed, to keep the Transmission line at its maximum capacity and integrity. This survey was last conducted in July of 2003.

The helicopter service has been contracted out to Camera Copters of Miami, Florida; however, two KEYS employees will conduct the actual survey. A KEYS lineman will be suspended from the helicopter to perform the visual inspection and will then relay the information to the second KEYS employee for documentation.

KEYS customers should be aware of the possibility of dust and sand that may be blown around due to the downward thrust from the helicopter. Those customers with property near U.S. Highway 1 should place garbage cans, lawn furniture, and light weight objects indoors. Additionally, residents are advised to drive safely while this survey is in progress, and keep their focus on the road and not the helicopter flying overhead.
