Water district to use drone this week

Across the country, aerial drones are changing the way construction companies do business, using the unmanned camera mounted vehicle to monitor work, obtain real-time data on job progress and even identify potential hazards.

This week, the water district will utilize one such drone to take still photographs and video of the Reliability Improvement Project. The flight takes place Thursday, May 19 around 10 a.m. and will last about an hour.

GeoWing Mapping, the company that will conduct the flight, will ensure the drone flies only over the property of the water treatment plant and public roads. It will not fly over private property. The Oakland based company complies with all requirements from the Federal Aviation Administration and local and water district requirements.
