A date has been set for a public information meeting about a wind turbine study, being conducted by the Huron County Health Unit.
The session will present details on the upcoming study regarding reported human health concerns associated with living near industrial wind turbines.
The meeting is being held on Thursday, October 26th in the auditorium of the Health Unit’s complex, just south of Clinton. It starts at 7:00 p.m.
Seating is limited, so you are asked to call the health unit at 519-482-3416 and dial ‘0’ to speak to the receptionist about attending.
Epidemiologist Erica Clark explains they’ll start recruiting participants for the study in a few weeks.
“We’ll be looking for people that are Huron County residents that live within ten kilometres of a wind turbine and we want to talk to both people that do have difficulties with wind turbines and also those that do not. We are very much interested in speaking with people who have both perspective”, says Dr. Clark.
“What we’re looking to do with the analysis is see if we can find some environmental factors that might account for why we have some households that are experiencing a number of difficulties with the wind turbines and then we have other households that report that they’re doing just fine.”
