Helicopters will be flying around the hills above Cupertino Thursday and possibly Friday as PG&E works to clean the insulators on the power lines.
Lehigh Hanson Cement agreed to let the utility company use the parking lot outside the main gate of the Lehigh facility to refill the water PG&E will use to clean, according to Lehigh spokeswoman Sandy James.
“Operations will begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday and will continue for the rest of the day and perhaps Friday, Oct. 12. It is unknown how many times they will have to land to re-fuel,” she wrote in a statement to the City.
Lehigh is located in an unincorporated area of Santa Clara County between Cupertino and Los Altos.
