DeKalb County, GA, September 10 – By now most readers of the Brookhaven Post are well aware of a Water Main break that occurred days ago on Clairmont Rd., adjacent to Century Center. The 30” pipe has been repaired, although other repairs to the site are still ongoing.
Could low frequency vibrations have contributed to the pipe’s failure? Could those same low frequency vibrations be responsible for issues residents nearby are experiencing in and around their homes?
It’s a complicated question, with complicated answers, but perhaps science has an explanation. It’s certainly something to consider.
Citizens living in close proximity to an Atlanta Gas/Light Gas Regulator Station that is being constructed on what is known as “Parcel 36”, have been experiencing property settlement and an abnormally high incidence of water line ruptures.
Cheryl Huvard, a local area resident and member of the Clairmont Community Alliance, which includes Clairmont North, Tanglewood Circle, Clairmont Terrace and Shalimar Drive communities, has been researching the issue, and the findings definitely raise many questions.
In the following Letter to the Editor, Huvard explains research that has been conducted and raises the point that underground low-frequency vibrations could be responsible for a host of issues.
