In 2005, the Connecticut Siting
Council (CSC) granted permission to Nextel Communications
to erect a high-power 851 Megahertz cell phone transmission
mast on top of a power line stanchion on Beebe Hill, above
Falls Village in Litchfield County, Connecticut, on the banks
of the Housatonic River and next to the state’s largest
inland wetland home of multiple endangered species, and a
major flyway for migratory birds.

the Connecticut Siting Council for a Declaratory Ruling invalidating
the January 24, 2005 order approving Nextel Communications
Petition 701 to install 6 antennas on an existing power line
pylon on Beebe Hill, Canaan, Connecticut.
14, 2004 Petition
#701 of Nextel Communications before the CSC for a Declaratory
Ruling that a modification of Connecticut Light & Power’s
pole structure in the Town of Canaan will not have a significant
adverse environmental effect, and therefore, will not require
a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need.

to the CSC from Michael J. Bartlett, Supervisor of the New
England Field Office, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)

impacts on North American avifauna. This letter states that
USFWS would be glad to help design such a study.
