Location  Distance Average Flux Level
Playground Equipment-front  160  13.42 mG (+/- 2.21 mG)
New building-wall  260  5.70 mG (+/- 0.90 mG)
Main building-wall  360  3.05 mG ( +/-0.50 mG) 
Parking Lot-boundary 640  0.98 mG (+/- 0.17 mG)

Are the above magnetic flux levels acceptable? If not, then what maximum limits are acceptable to the school board, administration, teachers, and parents? Currently, there are no federal or state maximum acceptable limits, except a 200 mG right-of-way edge limit for transmission lines in Florida and New York. It should be noted that the typical Morrisville-Loudoun 525 KV right-of-way edge levels range from 29 mG (April 1994) to 45.42 mG (2004 winter peak).

Here was data from other places in the school.

This was data from an analysis of a particular elementary school.  School boards and school administrators need to be aware of emf’s when planning new buildings, and rehabilitating old buildings.

Adding a mast increases the emf’s and should be avoided.

There is increasing research to show that children, in particular, are affected by the increasing amount of radiation around them.  School administrators, school boards, and contractors should err on the side of caution, even if this involves increased expense or less income.  The health of the children, teachers and employees are at stake.
