The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority has issued a press release important to BSRA members. Lake Huron water levels at highest levels in years: higher water combined with wet ground, natural hazards, pose risks of more gully and bluff erosion, potential slope failure.
THIS INVESTIGATION HAS BEEN PAUSED. Councillor John Gillespie has offered to receive reports of turbine related health concerns. Johngill@hay.net
The Huron County Health Unit is investigating reports of health concerns believed to be caused or related to the wind turbines. NOW is the time to register your own issues with them. http://www.huroncountyhealthunit.ca
The Municipality of Bluewater does not have an actual process for receiving or tracking concerns at this time. If you choose to inform them, you will requested to contact the Health Unit. PLEASE be aware that the municipality will not be informing the health unit on your behalf. IT IS UP TO YOU!
In May, the Huron County Health Unit will be launching a survey that will be part of their investigation regarding health issues and Industrial Turbines. More information and registration is available on the Huron County Health Unit website.
The Bluewater Area Family Health Team hosted an open house last night to provide residents and interested parties an opportunity to learn about their expansion plans. While they do have government funding, there is still a need for $600,000 to purchase things like equipment, furniture etc. that do not fall under the grant. BAFHT has now received charitable status so the campaign has begun!
While it does seem like a huge goal, this is a very significant project that will be an outstanding milestone in health care, not just in Bluewater, but all of Huron County.
Recently Council asked staff to look into the best way to track complaints or reports of health issues believed to be related to Industrial Wind Turbines. After consulting with the Health Unit, it continues to be recommended that if residents have health concerns regarding wind turbines they must contact the Spills Action Centre at the Ministry of the Environment at 1-800-268-6060. If after they investigate and if they are unable to address their concerns, the next step is to send their concerns to the Health Unit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org for further review and investigation.
There is interesting information being circulated this week.
