Brownsville, WI family diary: living with turbines (UPDATED)

Invenergy's Forward Wind facility, Brownsville WI
The Brownsville Diary: Entries of a noise log maintained by a Brownsville, Wisconsin family living 3/4 miles east of South Byron in Fond Du Lac County, Wisconsin. The new wind turbines are now on-line and fully operational.

 

The Diary Begins on March 3, 2008:

Our family lives on County Road Y in Brownsville, Wisconsin, which is about 3⁄4 of mile east of South Byron.

Turbine # 4 is 1560 feet behind my house.

Turbine # 3a is about 500 feet mostly east and a little north of turbine #4.
Turbine #6 is about 3⁄4 of mile to the northwest of our home.

Across the road, mostly south and slightly west is turbine #73 at a distance of 2480 feet.

Down the hill to the west is turbine #74a which is about 3⁄4 of a mile away.
We can hear all five of these turbines at various times.
