Hawaiian Electric will be conducting its quarterly aerial inspections of major overhead transmission lines next week.

The islandwide inspections, meant to improve system reliability, will take place Aug. 10-13 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. However, exact times and routes will depend on weather conditions.

Inspections will be conducted in a Manuiwa Airways helicopter and require the aircraft to fly low and slow which may cause some noise disturbances.

If there are any questions or concerns, call 808-969-6666.
