Realizing that they face an uphill battle, some Green's Farms residents are trying to stop the planned construction of a $20 million electrical substation on New Creek Road, which they say could be unsafe and unwarranted.
"What are Green's Farms residents getting out of this? We already have to deal with and noise and the pollution from [Interstate] 95 and the railroad," said James Burke, who lives on the nearby Turkey Hill Road South. "Now we're going to have to deal with the [electromagnetic] pollution as well. Our taxes aren't going to be any lower. We're not going to be getting any benefits, but we'll be bearing all the costs."
