ORANGEVILLE, N.Y. -- Sixty residents from Orangeville and Attica have filed lawsuits claiming that the Stony Creek Wind Farm is ruining their quality of life, destroyed property values, and is affecting their health because of noise and vibration.
Attorney Richard Lippes, who handled the Love Canal lawsuits, is representing the angry residents.
Lippes said the basis of the lawsuit claims the wind turbines were erected too close to residential homes and are now causing “adverse effects."
The lawsuits were filed in State Supreme Court in Wyoming County and they also seek restrictions on operation of the wind turbines.
The Orangeville wind farm contains 58 wind turbines and was constructed in 2013 by Invenergy - which is the sole defendant in the lawsuits.
