    There should be very little to no current going over the ground line. It is there only in case something goes wrong (lightening, short, ect) and should not conduct current under normal situation.

    There should be none. Ground tension (voltage) is supposed to be zero. If it is not, or you are facing an issue with the ground itself (not too much grounded, or with some resistance forming) or, as FastServ said, there is a short circuit somewhere or some abnormal electricity discharge happening in the circuits.
