Aboveground transmission power line defies Hartland Township ordinance

In 2007, The Michigan Public Service Board approved construction of an overhead transmission line in Livingston and Oakland counties by ITC Transmission. The Transmission line defies a Hartland Township local ordinance which requires all new electrical transmission lines to be buried. The new power line will stretch for 21-miles through a pristine section of Hartland Township. The poles will be between 100 and 140 feet in height.

Similar transmission infrastructure is proposed or under construction to service wind facilities in the US. The Hartland residents express their concerns in this video.
