Transformer substation buzz annoys
PSE Substation controversy continues with claims of unsafe EMF radiation
The Kirkland neighbors of a new Puget Sound Energy (PSE) substation in Juanita continue to make their case to other neighbors, the City Council, the media ? anyone who will listen. They have lodged complaints against City Hall, the permitting process and PSE. Their complaints are not just about the process and damages to their homes. Now their concern is for their health. The adjacent property owners claim the substation in their back yards is emitting dangerously high electromagnetic field (EMF) levels and is hazardous to their health. Q13Fox has a story about the EMF levels and how those living next door to the PSE substation claim their health is at risk.
