“I live right under the wind turbines” (New York)

“Noisy wind turbines have ruined Fairfield”
—Carolyn Riesel, Letter to the Editor, UticaOD.com (3/26/11)
Day and all night long, I hear grinding and grinding, whooshing and whooshing non-stop. I live right under the wind turbines in Fairfield.
Every window, east, west, north and south has a wind turbine. My beautiful landscape is forever gone.
We cannot carry on conversations outside due to the constant noise level. There is a constant droning sound inside my home that was never there before. I can’t even begin to imagine the noise when the turbines are going full force and in the summer; I bet I won’t even be able to have my windows open due to the high noise levels.
I have heard comments that no one is complaining about the noise level.
Those of us living within the triangle of the turbines have called our town “fathers” repeatedly, with no answers.
When I purchased my home, it was not with the understanding there would be health risking turbines surrounding my home disrupting my peace.
I wonder if I put up something my neighbors did not want, would I have to remove it? I bet I would. No one asked if I agreed to have these ugly things in every window of my home.
I attended town meetings, voiced my opposition to no avail.
Do not allow the wind turbines to destroy your land, peace and health.
