SCE&G using helicopter for line work in West Columbia

Did you hear a loud buzzing sound outside of your home Monday?

S.C. Electric and Gas contractors are using a helicopter to perform electric line work in the West Columbia area this week, Monday through Friday. The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. On Monday, much of the work was being done in the Sunset Boulevard vicinity at Kay Koon Drive, near Providence Presbyterian Church.

“During this period, people may see helicopters at low altitudes near our poles and lines as we safely work to enhance reliability for the residents and businesses we serve,” said Kelvin Rogers, General Manager of Electric Transmission for SCE&G.

The work area covers a stretch of approximately five miles, from near I-126 to just east of the Columbia Metropolitan Airport.
