Avian Protection

Our service territory is part of one of the nationís most important migratory thruways and provides seasonal nesting sites for dozens of bird species. Our statesí rivers also provide natural habitat for eagles, ospreys and other raptors. Our avian protection plan reduces the risk from avian interactions with utility facilities.

Actions we are taking include the following:

  • Equipment that alerts or deters birds from utility infrastructure
  • Artificial nesting platforms to protect birds from the risk of electrocution
  • Coordinated nest removal and relocation when no other options exist.
