Central Maine Power is committed to the safe, reliable delivery of energy to homes and businesses throughout central and southern Maine. We wanted to let you know about some activity that will be happening over the next few weeks along transmission corridors in your community.
 
We are conducting inspections of transmission lines in your communities using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology. This is a three-step process.
 
·         First, contractors working on our behalf have placed physical targets in locations along the utility corridor. Over the next few days, people will be visiting those targets to record GPS data for each one.
·         Second, aircraft will fly over the lines, take photographs, and record data. These flights should be at a high enough altitude that the public is not likely to notice. We expect this to take place May 19 and 20, weather permitting.
·         Third, contractors will go back into the transmission corridors and remove the targets. This should happen after the flights are completed, most likely the week of May 22 to 27.
 
The transmission lines being evaluated are:
 
·         Section 11, beginning at the Topsham Substation off Main Street (Route 201) and running mainly in an easterly/southeasterly direction past Cooks Corner in Brunswick to the Bath Substation on Lily Pond Road (off State Road, just west of downtown Bath)
·         Section 77, beginning at the Bath Substation on Lily Pond Road, running northerly, crossing the Kennebec River into Woolwich at Chops Point, then easterly to the Mason Substation off Birch Point Road in Wiscasset
 
We don’t expect this activity to cause any disruption or inconvenience, but some people who see it might consider it unusual enough to call police or other town personnel to ask what is happening. Please feel free to share this information with your teams as you feel appropriate, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
