    Council not responsive on meter fees

    To the editor:
    I was disappointed at the Fairfield City Council meeting on Monday night, June 25. At the Council meeting, about a dozen people pleaded to eliminate opt-out fees to replace Neptune radio-read water meters. Neptune radio-read meters, which are often right inside people’s homes, emit pulses of RF radiation every 14 seconds 24 hours a day.

    Many people were concerned about the health effects of these meters. There is a huge controversy nationally and internationally about RF (Smart) meters. Numerous leading scientists and medical organizations have warned against them. At the council meeting, people were asking to be able to replace with no fee the RF emitting meters with less expensive touch-pad meters that do not radiate. The council kept the fee.

    At the meeting, one woman reported that since the meter was installed in her home 2-3 years ago, she has been unable to sleep and has had such little energy her entire life has suffered. She used to be very active, with no health problems. She had to give up dancing and horseback riding. She cannot work, can hardly get out of bed, and must conserve her energy to do anything.

    She only discovered the RF meter in her home on Monday, the day of the meeting. When she called the Fairfield water department, she was told 8-10 people had reported the same symptoms from these meters. Across the country, these symptoms as well as headaches, ringing in the ears, heart palpitations, and other problems are reported from RF meters.

    Many other Fairfield residents could be suffering from these debilitating symptoms without knowing the cause. RF meters have been installed in one third of Fairfield homes without telling anyone the meters emit radiation. Why should anyone have to pay to replace a meter of questionable safety that was installed without informing them the meters radiate?

    To replace RF meters, Fairfield residents are charged $75/hr installation plus $10/month added to all future water bills. One man pointed out that since the replacement meter is $154 less expensive than the RF meter, the money saved should cover installation. Also, as employees can read 300 meters a day and are paid $27/hr, the cost of reading one meter seems only about $1, not $10.

    Another lady said she had been using the opt-out touch-pad meter for years without paying any extra fees. Why should she or anyone else have to start paying extra fees for a touch-pad meter? Others said they can’t afford the fees. City officials did not present any detailed cost-analysis justifying the fees.

    Connie Boyer and John Revolinski voted to eliminate opt-out fees. However, they were outvoted by all other council members. The fees remain.

    The state of Vermont and at least 15 US cities and counties outside Vermont offer zero cost opt-out from RF meters. How can we get the Fairfield City Council to also eliminate opt-out fees?

  2. This is a great site. I’m passing the URL on to others –especially my head-in-the-sand family and friends. Thank you for all your efforts.

  3. We’d like to call you if possible. We just received a letter from the City of Marion requesting an appointment to install one of these wireless water meters in our basement, and if we do not schedule an apptmt by March 4th they will SHUT OFF OUR WATER. We are not delinquent on our bill, and we have serious concerns about the health effects of such a unit radiating us all day, every day, from within our home. The city has given us less than two weeks to do any research or to find out how to respond! This came out of the blue. Help!

    • These would be classed as Wicked and Illegal Bullying Tactics here in Victoria Australia. Some of us here in Australia have been left alone and although I was bullied for some time with both nasty phone calls and rude letters, our Canberra Head of Government came to my and many of my friend aid with the following Legal Notice for a $1.1,000,000: 00 Million Dollar Australian Fine on the Electric Power Company which was bullying both me and my neighbours. This great Legal Notice of a Heavy Fine on this Electric Power Company seems to have worked a treat as they only had fourteen days in which to contact me by letter.

      I have not heard a thing from them now for nearly twelve (12 ) months so I think they must have learnt to READ BY NOW.

  4. We just got a touch pad.only becuase we requested an outdoor garden water line. Now we have two meters, both neptune touch pads, one for inside water, one for outside water. The nepteun water meter for garden watering runs like a race horse! my husband and i opened water spickets inside , and compared it to the water spickets for outside as we watched the meters and the outside meter is at least 1 and 1/2 time faster at the very least, and we realize further evaluation will need to be done for pipe sizes etc. I have seen people have higher bills using tyhe neptune. has anyone else had problems like this?. the outside meter spicket is 1. installed upside down 9 not sure if that makes any difference) and two is supposed to save us money..but runs it seems much faster and appears it may be defective becasue of how fast it runs.tsettwo i tseebvh
