We have credible reports from several sources there’s again stray sidewalk voltage on Middagh Street, near Columbia Heights. Of particular concern because it’s one path dog walkers take to get the Hillside Dog Park, right around the corner. Con Edison has been alerted.
We’ve had stray sidewalk voltage at this location in previous years. Best to avoid that patch of Middagh until the salty slushy streets are gone, which can act as a conductor of stray electrical voltage in the sidewalk. It can be quite serious and deadly to both dogs and humans.
