Met-Ed is mobilizing to perform routine helicopter patrols on all Met-Ed transmission lines. These patrols are anticipated to take approximately two weeks to complete, but as always, work is strongly weather dependent and completion could be impeded by any post-storm or outage-related patrols that may occur. The helicopter to be used for these patrols is:  Black, Hughes MD500 with red tail registration number N5027P.
These routine visual patrols are a general inspection of the structures, conductors, and all associated hardware on the transmission line(s) looking for any outstanding issues or immediate threats to the reliability of the transmission line(s). The helicopter may also be seen hovering and/or circling to get a closer look at any problems that may be found during these patrols.

Rain Garden Coming to Roof Park

A team of York County Master Watershed Stewards with the Penn State Extension, including several township residents, are taking the lead and working with Fairview Township to design and install a rain garden in Roof Park.  “What is a Rain Garden?  A rain garden is a planted depression that soaks up rainwater runoff from roofs, driveways, walkways, and compacted lawn areas—water that would otherwise carry pollutants directly to our streams. Rain gardens soak up 30 percent more water than an equivalent patch of lawn.”(Penn State Extension…https://extension.psu.edu/an Introduction to Rain Gardens (psu.edu)   Fairview Township will be providing the plants, mulch, and other supplies as well as heavy equipment.  Construction is expected to begin sometime in May of 2021 and completed by the end of June 2021.  The rain garden will be located adjacent to the walking path within Roof Park and will include only native plants. This will help reduce stormwater runoff.  It will capture runoff from the area adjacent to the path and allow it to infiltrate back into the ground and the evapotranspiration process to take place. Native plants also help reduce runoff pollutants, such as excess nitrogen, and provide food for pollinators. Additionally rain gardens are very aesthetically pleasing and provide an educational opportunity for children and adults.   Fairview Township continues to look for ways to further engage the community in stormwater management projects and educational opportunities by seeking other locations to install or retrofit other Stormwater BMPs.  If you think you may have a location, please contact Paul Rodrigo, MS4 Coordinator @ 717-901-5298.
