What is safe distance to 500 kv power line ?
500 kv power line is coming to our town. It will be 200 meters from our house, and 125 meters + some elevation(they make towers higher than usual, not sure how much) from the middle school in our town. We are trying to understand if it will be safe enough for our children to spend school day in middle school and then the rest of the day in our house. I was told that playing field between middle school and 500 kv power line will be closed for use when power line will be built. I've read a lot online, but very few places discuss 500 kv power lines. And to move out of the town is huge decision. I did read post on this site , but latest posts were in 2009, may something changed since 2009? Anybody knows about similar situation ? Anybody live now as close to 500 kv poer line ? Anybody knows safe distance ? Are we too close ? Any thoughts ? Many thanks to all
