The Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reports that RPM Access wants to build the Washburn Wind Farm, a 70 megawatt facility south of Waterloo. Several people who live nearby have said they're concerned that the turbines could hurt their property values, kill bats and birds, throw ice from the blades and cause health issues due to low-frequency noise, motion and shadow flicker.

why is it that everything that's been done so far has been kept quiet from everyone that lives in the area except the people there trying to get their land. Several land owners don't even live by the site. Why do they call it the Washburn wind farm when its no ware near there its right in the middle of Eagle Center, and yes we do see eagles often. People need to do their research.
