High-voltage line still raising concern with area residents

August 27, 2012

Area residents are continuing to voice concern about a proposed high-voltage transmission line to be installed by Entergy Arkansas in Benton.
The route for the line includes property that runs alongside Bernard Holland Park, where youngsters play ball many days of the year.
Many residents are concerned about the potential health risks to children because of the location of the line, but city officials contend there is no cause for alarm.
Mayor David Mattingly said Wednesday that he had been informed that the location of the line does not pose any health hazards.
