Because of the potential health risks associated with construction of wind turbines in Fairhaven, I would ask that the Board of Health further investigate this matter and halt this project in its tracks. The developers do not have to live with these turbines in their backyards.
Surely, if there are health risks involved, as seems to be indicated by studies and the experiences of our neighbors in Falmouth, any benefit that we would derive from the turbines would be negated.
