WINTERSET, Iowa – The Madison County Board of Health says there is the potential that wind turbines could be bad for your health.
The board passed a resolution* recommending that any future turbines be built at least a mile and a half from non-participating homes.
The Iowa Environmental Council argues that no peer-reviewed scientific studies have found links between wind turbines and health issues.
*“Resolved: that the Madison County Board of Health determines that there is the potential for negative health effects associated with commercial wind turbines and that current setbacks are inadequate to protect the public health. The Board encourages those entities with jurisdiction within the County to require a one and one-half (1-1/2) mile setback for future wind turbine projects.”
