EKP To Set Off Bird Cannons

East Kentucky Power will be setting off bird cannons beginning Thursday, Feb. 16, at its west end Spurlock Plant on Kentuck 8. 

Bird or air cannons are devices which emit a sound much like a gunshot and are used to clear an area of wildlife. 

EKP will be setting the cannons off for about an hour at dawn and at dusk intermittently for the next three weeks. The sound is likely to be heard throughout downtown.
