By Miriam Raftery
February 29, 2016 (Alpine) -- The San Diego County Office of Education on Friday released a draft Survey and Exposure Assessment or electrmagnetic fields (EMF) for Alpine Elementary School. The study concludes that the Sunrise Powerlink transmisison line buried on Alpine Blvd.does not pose a significant safety or health risk to the school site." The study further finds that readings in and around buildings at Alpine Elementary "while not representative of a pristine EMF environment, were within a normal range of exposures one could expect in a society with electric power."
The County study examines 94 measurements taken inside and outside the school and cites several reasons for concluding the site is safe.
