Letter to the Editor:Water meters can affect seniors

There is ample evidence that these meters can affect seniors and especially those with pacemakers.

After reading the letter to the editor in the Grand Forks Gazette by Don Lea and doing some checking on my own, I will not be getting an RF water meter installed in my home and I will have a sign posted on my property to the effect: “Attention: Do not install a water meter of any kind. This is a medical risk to me.”

I will provide a letter from my doctor to this effect and if installation proceeds in spite of this, I will take legal action against the City of Grand Forks. As a further precaution on the part of the city and because of the distance these frequencies are capable of being read at, the residences on either side of me and across the lane to the north should also be put on hold for installations.

There is ample evidence that these meters can affect seniors and especially those with pacemakers (as is my case) and certain individuals.

Stan Halluk, Grand Forks
