NPPD using helicopter to pull new transmission line for Dakota County, NE


Nebraska Public Power District began pulling 2 lines for a new transmission line in South Sioux City, Monday.

Those lines are 115,000 volts.

All the upgrades are feeding into the new substation on east side of South Sioux City. "Reliability of the system for future upgrades, future expansions of the town, future businesses coming in. So we're there to meet the needs of the electricity needs and reliability needs of the system," said Jim Shafer, Senior Project Coordinator.

Much of the operation will be done by helicopter which is used to pull the wire into place.

NPPD is asking if you see them working, please use caution around the machines.
