Viejas Donates $5,000 to Fund EMF Study at Alpine Elementary School

VBKI Crest Logos_102412

SAN DIEGO, CA (February 29, 2016) – The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians recently pledged $5,000 to the Alpine Education Foundation to fund an electromagnetic field (EMF) study of Sunrise Powerlink high voltage lines buried near Alpine Elementary School. In response to elevated EMF levels measured near the school, the Alpine Community has raised concerns regarding possible health risks to local children. High EMF levels have potential links to leukemia and other serious health issues. The study will measure between 15 and 20 separate locations on the property and in classrooms. “We share in our community’s concerns over this issue and we appreciate the steps that the Alpine Education Foundation is taking to support the families of Alpine,” commented Viejas Tribal Chairman Robert Welch.

Supervisor Jacob Says CPUC’s Initial Response Concerning EMF Levels on Alpine Blvd. “FALLS SHORT”

Dianne Jacob_Photo_opt

March 4, 2016 –

We finally have the attention of the California Public Utilities Commission on the issue of electromagnetic field levels in Alpine, but the agency’s initial response falls far short of what must be done. In a brief letter received by my office late yesterday, CPUC President Michael Picker promises to “further investigate the matter.” Recent reports of high EMF levels along SDG&E’s Sunrise Powerlink through Alpine must be addressed immediately or the utility company should shut down the line until they are resolved. The CPUC letter fails to include a timeline for an investigation and makes no assurances there will be an independent review of the results. Instead, Picker says he will alert SDG&E and encourage them to work with me. Does that mean state regulators want SDG&E to help lead an investigation? Terrible idea. The utility can’t be trusted and has zero credibility in our community, especially since the construction of Sunrise Powerlink. The CPUC should also make sure SDG&E is not manipulating the level of power running through line in an attempt to alter EMF readings.

I’m writing the CPUC back and asking for details and clarification.

See Picker’s letter below:
