East Hampton rallies against PSEG utility poles

A couple of hundred East Hampton residents gathered to assail PSEG Long Island for recently installing 62-foot-high utility poles along residential streets despite their health and safety concerns. The battle to bury new high-voltage transmission lines has escalated, with the town issuing a stop-work order and threatening to sue PSEG Long Island.
