Residents of Prince William County began to complain about the high noise level of the Amazon data center. After that, the population of Fokir County demanded to ban the construction of the company's data center.

Initially, in Northern Virginia, data centers were concentrated mainly in Loudon County. Now Loudon has proposed new zoning rules for data centers so as not to disturb local residents. Also, the initiative group demands to revise the environmental standards of construction and the permissible noise level. She expects that some places will stop approving the construction of the data center in an expedited manner.

Meanwhile, residents of Culpeper County have already filed a lawsuit demanding the cancellation of permission to rezone and develop the Amazon data center. In Fokir County, Amazon bought more than 16 hectares of land, applied for the construction of a new data center and agreed with local power distribution company Dominion Energy. Initially, local residents protested against the construction of 230-kV transmission lines above their homes.

Also, the population of the state complains about the increase in land prices due to its purchase for the data center. Residents note that taxes for them do not decrease as data centers develop. At the same time, data centers provide about a third of local tax revenues.

Earlier it became known that Amazon Web Services will invest almost $12 billion in the construction of five data centers in Morrow County, Oregon.
