I believe those are sodium vapor lamps. At a prior QTH I had a similar
problem but the power company fixed it in one visit.
What you need to do is take a radio to the honchos there and show them the
noise. Then suggest that the arcing will cause them possible illnesses as
well as affect pacemakers if it gets worse. Ill bet that will get action!
