With Independence turbine down, letter sent

KINGSTON – The breakdown of the Kingston Wind Independence turbine and needed repairs were briefly addressed at Monday night’s Board of Health meeting.

The Board of Health wants to be notified immediately by the turbine operators when there is going to be any testing or start-up of the turbine so that the board has advance noticed. A letter will be sent to KWI with this request. The board usually receives daily compliance notifications.

Board of Health member Joe Casna’s suggestion that the board write a letter to the state Department of Environmental Protection asking if there’s any new information relative to shadow flicker instead of waiting for DEP to notify them was adopted by the board.

Chairman Jack Breen said the letter would also accomplish what board member Bill Watson wanted to do, and that was to go a step further and ask DEP to do a study on the health effects of flicker on behalf of the town.

In compliance

Health agent Henny Walters reported that compliance checks into the sale of tobacco products to minors resulted in no violations reported at the 17 locations checked.

She said a walk-through of the stores also found no evidence of synthetic drugs. The Board of Health recently adopted a new bylaw banning synthetic drugs in town.

All signed up

The Board of Health has renewed its annual $8,000 contract with the local visiting nurses association ensuring free health clinics from 10 a.m. to noon every second and fourth Thursday of the month at the Senior Center, blood pressure and glucose screenings, health information sessions and an annual spring health fair.

Water sampling begins again

With beach season here, water sampling began last week and will continue on a weekly basis through Labor Day. The results are submitted to the Department of Public Health.
