Alpine residents have more questions about the Sunrise Powerlink

SDG&E has scheduled a series of "Community Council" meetings in communities that will be affected by construction of the Sunrise Powerlink. In their words the purpose is to "keep the community informed so that accurate information is available and inconveniences can be kept to a minimum."

If Alpine is any indication of "keeping the community informed" then SDG&E has not been doing its' due diligence. Many Alpine residents who attended Monday nights Community Council meeting still feel like they are being left in the dark about the  undergrounding portion which will run under Alpine Blvd.  There were questions with regards to EMFs which SDG&E could not answer, as well as concerns over where the two million gallons of water required for the project would come from.

Regardless of what SDG&E states, the construction of the Sunrise Powerlink will have a devastating effect on the town of Alpine. No amount of mitigation will undo the damage that two years of construction will have on the businesses in Alpine and the quality of life for its' residents.
