A group of anti wind turbine activists want the local health department to join their fight against the Wolfe Island wind turbine project.
Members of “Wolf Island Residents for the Environment” [sic] made a presentation to the public heath [sic] board this afternoon.
The group says the wind turbine project failed to include public health as a key stake holder in the environmental review.
Group members say the noise produced by 86 wind turbines will impact the health of island residents.
Studies have shown a wind turbine’s “swishing” sound can get very loud.
The island group says the issue needs more study[.]
“Vibrations, low acoustical sounds, you know the thumping of base [sic] goes right through your home or car if you have the music too loud, the key issue is the noise criteria they are using to give a certificate of approval for these turbines.”
The Wolfe Island group wants the health unit to back its call for an independent environmental assessment.
