Health concerns with turbines  

The Grey Bruce Health Unit needs to be more vocal.

A few wind turbine concerns need to be addressed by the public health unit.

Huron-Kinloss Mayor Mitch Twolan says comments on the wind turbine proposals may put some of the public’s concerns at ease.

He says it would provide some reassurance to the public and to the area councils that another body has looked at the proposal and feel comfortable with the project.

Wind turbines have raised a number of health related concerns including noise, blade flicker and shadow, ice throw and possible collapse.

Twolan says the health unit normally doesn’t get involved, but if there are potential health risks the health unit needs to assess and address the issues.

There are a few wind turbine project proposals in Bruce County, the largest being 110 turbines to be erected in Kincardine.
