Brockton: Scituate couple to ask judge to shut down wind turbine

A superior court judge in Brockton Superior Court will be asked on Monday at 2:00 p.m. to immediately shut down the wind turbine that’s located off the Driftway in Scituate.

A Scituate couple, Mark and Lauren McKeever, have already filed a lawsuit against the Scituate Board of Health because of alleged health hazards their family has faced as a result of noise and shadow flicker from the turbine that is just 640 feet away from their home.

The McKeever’s want the judge to require that the turbine be shut off until the lawsuit is resolved.

An attorney representing the town will also be present in court.



About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
