Due to concerns over groundwater issues, Board of Health advises against wind farms in southern Wisconsin county.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette article, “Wind turbines pose groundwater, health issues, panel says,” the Board of Health has recommended that no wind turbines be built in the county’s southern region where a 100-turbine wind farm has been proposed.

Construction of these massive devices may well have a serious impact on water resources.  You might recall this cautionary post by Art and Pamela Dodds here a short while back:  Industrial wind’s rubber stamp? “Rather than being effective regulatory agencies, the state authorities have simply opted to be the permitting agencies.”

This is an issue that deserves attention.
