Clarification: Turbine noise complaints  

Credit:  Sun Journal, www.sunjournal.com 13 January 2012 ~~

ROXBURY – A story on wind turbine noise complaints published Thursday on Page B1 of the River Valley edition should have stated that the Maine Department of Environmental Protection doesn’t have the equipment, staff, or expertise to readily measure sound. When necessary, DEP hires a third party sound expert to review sound level data that is submitted by an applicant or licensee. The department then bills the applicant/licensee for the third party’s services.

People with complaints about wind turbine noise should email them to beth.callahan@maine.gov so the DEP can have them in writing until a pending complaint response process is set up. People should include their name, location, time they heard the noise, weather conditions at the time of the sound, and a sound recording, if possible.
