WHO:      FirstEnergy
            Transmission Line Construction Project Linking Davis-Besse Power
            Station and Substation Near Sandusky
WHAT:     Minimizing wetland impact by using helicopters to string new high
            voltage transmission lines between towers
            Dramatic photo opportunities will be available showing workers on
            helicopter platforms attaching new transmission lines.
WHEN:   Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at 10:30 a.m.
WHERE:   Construction Staging Area, County Road 216 and County Road 261,
            Riley, Ohio
            From the intersection of County Roads 216 and 261, take the gravel
            access road east for about 0.7 miles and park along the side of
            the road
            This 138 kilovolt transmission line will be installed on existing
WHY: towers that run from the Davis Besse Nuclear Power Plant to a new
            substation on Route 4 in Sandusky County, a distance of about 30
            While some of the towers along the route are accessible from the
            ground, several of the towers are located in sensitive wetland
            areas, and accessing these towers from the air minimizes the
            environmental impact of the work.
