            “No dwelling or related property improvement may be located within the engineering (designed) fall distance of any pole, tower or support structure of a high-voltage transmission line, radio/TV transmission tower, microwave relay dish or tower or satellite dish (radio, TV cable, etc.).  For field analysis, the appraiser may use tower height as the fall distance. 

            For the purpose of this Handbook, a High-Voltage Electric Transmission Line is a power line that carries high voltage between a generating plant and a substation.  These lines are usually 60 Kilovolts (kV) and greater, and are considered hazardous.  Lines with capacity of 12-60 kV and above are considered high voltage for the purpose of this Handbook.  High voltage lines do not include local distribution and service lines. 

            Low voltage power lines are distribution lines that commonly supply power to housing developments and similar facilities.  These lines are usually 12 kV or less and are considered to be a minimum hazard.  These lines may not pass directly over any structure, including pools, on the property being insured by HUD.”
