Pittsfield Massachusetts Board of Health Order Regarding Injury From Verizon Cell Tower

  • On April 6, 2022, the Pittsfield, Massachusetts Board of Health voted to send a cease and desist order to shut down a Verizon cell tower if Verizon does not respond with meaningful action regarding a cell tower. The Board took action after families living in the neighborhood of Shacktown near a Verizon cell  tower reported wireless radiation-related health issues soon after the tower became operational in 2020.  Seventeen people are reporting injuries linked to the radiation. After sending the Order, the situation became embroiled in a legal battle.
