Letter: RF radiation worrisome

We have a very serious problem here that you are maybe making worse, writes Don Lea.

City council, I have a very serious health condition. I’m in and out of the hospital constantly. I’m really worried about putting one of those RF radiation water meters in my home.

It would have to be installed right in a room where I spend a lot of time, and close by right below where we sleep. This is not good.

Could we get a medical waiver if you would call it that, allowing us to not get an RF meter? My health is no good, and the meter would do me no good at all. It may make things much worse. The worry isn’t going to help either.

There are pit meters that can be installed, but we can’t afford the $3,000 of whatever you would charge.

It’s not fair to charge us money for this thing, no way. We have a very serious problem here that you are maybe making worse. You are bullying us into this. It should be up to the city to allow those with issues or problems to get some sort of waiver, so they aren’t in increased danger from these meters.

– Don Lea, Grand Forks
