Doctor claims Scotland’s biggest windfarm has contaminated public water supply with cancer-causing chemical
The implantation of a wind turbine causes a significant impact on the land, on nearby water courses (sedimentation etc.) and on the water supply (filtrations into the soil). This particular picture is from the US.
“The radiologist, 58, said: “I obtained test results in 2013 from East Ayrshire Council and discovered that our water had been grossly contaminated with E.coli bacteria.
“That was bad enough but I am far more concerned about the presence of THMs in the public supply.
“We are drinking the stuff now but all the medical advice is that the effects may not be seen for 10 or 20 years.”
“Last week, MSP Graeme Pearson met Scottish Water’s director of strategic customer service planning, Professor Simon Parsons, to discuss Dr Connor’s findings.
“He said: “Dr Connor has identified that higher levels of cancer experienced in Scotland currently aren’t particularly well explained.
““She is not saying THMs are to blame but she has raised a question mark, saying it would be worth investigating.””
