Building under high tension lines is a deadly thing to do; as it could result to multiple fatality and health related damage.
Some people build under high tension lines because of ignorance, while others engage in this act because of negligence. It is understood that a very strong magnetic fields are usually emitted from high voltage transmission lines.
Hundreds of studies worldwide have shown that living next to high voltage power lines and other parts of the power transmission network increases the risk of cancer and other health problems because of the electromagnetic waves emitted from the transmission line.
Aside from the health issues, there could be physical accident which could result to multiple fatality. This physical accident could result to electric shock, fire breakout and electrocution.
The transmission company has advised people to desist from erecting residential or commercial buildings close to high-tension lines in the interest of their safety.
There has been incidents where high tension lines cut, landing on the roof resulting to multiple fatality.
In conclusion, building under or too near a high tension line can cause both physical and health damage. This is why we must not build under or too close to the high tension lines.
Safe clearance level should be adopted when planning to build around high tension line.
