Author:  | Environment, Noise, Ordinances, Wisconsin

The Trempealeau County (Wisc.) Board adopted a strong new wind energy ordinance on Dec. 17, 2007. It includes a one-mile setback from homes and workplaces, a half-mile setback from property lines, and a two-mile setback from wildlife refuges. It also has a 40 dbA upper noise limit and strong noise restrictions. It was drafted by a citizens advisory committee that was appointed by the County Board Chair in the summer.
