Testimony on DEP/DPH report

March 5, 2012
Dawn Devlin testifies before DEP and DPH officials

L-R moderator, Suzanne Condon (DPH), Ken Kimmell (DEP), Alicia McDevitt (DEP) listen as Dawn Devlin from Windwise Fairhaven speaks. The T-shirt's message is "Stop the Fairhaven Turbines."

Dawn Devlin (pictured left) has her hands full in Fairhaven, where citizens meet tonight to consider how to track health effects of the turbines slated for the Little Bay neighborhood. At the Monday, March 5, 2012 meeting, Windwise Fairhaven invites all residents living within 3000 feet of the 2-turbine site to a “Safety Health Meeting” at the Northeast Maritime Institute on Washington St. The program offers a system for residents to keep records of incidents that occur once the turbines commence operations.

Devlin testified at one of three hearings held by the Massachusetts Departments of Environmental Protection and Public Health. the public comment period continues until 5:00 pm on March 19, 2012.

Dozens of people attended the three hearings, refuting claims in the expert panel’s report. Neil Andersen found himself turned into a research subject by proximity to turbines; and John Cowl, MD, likens this scenario to an indicator of a new pandemic. Howard Gostin contradicts the report’s finding on noise emitted from various types of turbines.
