Locals Take Wind Industry to UN Over Its Destruction of Ontario’s Water Supply

The wind industry has all but destroyed water supplies in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. Hammering hundreds of giant steel piles (the foundations for 300 tonne turbines) into the aquifer across the county has turned once potable water into a grimy, toxic sludge.

Locals are, justifiably, incensed.

Losing their water supply would be bad enough, and being lied to by wind industry goons has its own special charm, of course.

But it’s the malign acquiescence displayed by local and state authorities that has an entire rural community seething.

A group of them have decided to take their complaint out of the Province and off to the United Nations.

UN Notified Of Dirty CK Well Water

Heather Gingerich says local and provincial leaders are
treasonous by allowing the wind turbine assault on local water.


A London-area geologist says she has reported the dirty water wells in Chatham-Kent to the United Nations.

Heather Gingerich says local and provincial leaders are treasonous by allowing the wind turbine assault on local water.

However, she says the likelihood the U.N. will do anything is small unless the community fully backs the move to stop pile driving wind towers into the ground.

Gingerich is not affiliated with the U.N. but is a medical geologist and calls on hospitals to document cases where urine is contaminated with toxins or there are signs of kidney disease related to well water polluted by black shale sediment.

10 water filters at 7268 Bay Line Rd still can’t properly filter well water.


She says the U.N. needs to know because the situation is salvageable.

“I have an ethical and fiduciary duty as well as a moral responsibility to do what I can do to sound the alarm,” says Gingerich.

Gingerich says wind farms are a classic example of predatory development and local and provincial leaders must be held accountable.

“This is textbook of what we can expect to see at the Hague (the International Court of Justice of the U.N.) in terms of who is responsible for not responding appropriately,” she says.

Gingerich says she’s also notified Chatham-Kent police, the OPP and the RCMP about the polluted water because she claims it’s an assault on citizens.

Gingerich says the police needed to know that citizens are being terrorized by pile driving.

“This is an assault, this is a chemical assault on whoever is drinking this water,” Gingerich says.

    Pointless going to the UN, they started the whole shebang. CO2 is not the issue, it is more to do with controlling all of the energy resources. If it was about CO2 we would have Nuclear as the poster child, not these whirling monstrosities.

  4. Jackie Rovensly says:

    The outcome of the complaint to the UN will go a long way to show just how entrenched it is in its support of a foolish and dangerous push for reduction of ‘green house gasses’ into the atmosphere WITHOUT first ensuring measures supported and promoted are SAFE in all manner of ways of establishing and operation of the measures.
    It will also go a long way in showing just how National Governments are willing to place their citizens in harms way to appease their signing of an agreement BEFORE ensuring what they were signing would not place their citizens in danger. It will also go a long way in showing how Local Governments have failed their communities by not challenging the National Governments to show they have ensured Due Diligence BEFORE signing off on any policy/program created by an international body.
    Is the UN up to accepting they have got it wrong – I doubt it as it appears to have become a body easily swayed by people with ‘an axe to grind’ and money to be made.
    It’s time this agreement Governments signed up to was scrapped due its proven failure to ensure the safety of people and the environment. If it is not scrapped by the UN then each Nation must withdraw stating its failure to protect its citizens from harm means it cannot continue to be aliened with it.
    Mr Turnbull as our Prime Minister you have a duty to withdraw from this Agreement to stop anymore harm to the people of this Nation by this industry which has achieved a status of self appointed leadership and control of our energy supply and as such has a very strong hold on the direction of this Nations present and future with Democracy falling by the wayside – this industry now controls Australia’s present and future. Energy/electricity is an ESSENTIAL SERVICE and should not be in control of this industry and its financial dependents and supporters to the detriment of this Nation and its people.
    Private enterprise is only acceptable if it does not take control of the Nations ability to be governed Democratically.

  5. This situation is still not a serious wake up call to the Liberal government of Ontario. These projects need to be to stopped altogether and yet, they are now advising base-line testing in communities where projects are going ahead.
    The integrity of the laboratory that tests the water is also in question.
    Innocent rural residents’ lives are being seriously disrupted by the harm these turbines have caused and this government still refuses to take responsibility and turn the turbines off.
    The election next Thursday is giving people hope. Stay tuned.

    Moses may have parted the Red Sea but the Renewable Energy Messiah may have to part wind as there is certainly not a zephyr of a breeze in SE Australia lately.
    He may have to pull a rabbit out of a hat to improve the performance of those wind farms.
    At least he’s trying, here’s the Messiah and Kane at the last Clean Energy Council meeting.
