Maine’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Land Use Regulation Commission (LURC) have awarded environmental consulting firm HMMH a four-year, on-call contract to provide peer-review consulting services associated with wind turbine sound assessment and analysis.

The DEP and LURC are responsible for processing applications under the Site Location of Development Law and the Development Review and Approval Law, respectively, and for ensuring that projects meet applicable noise performance standards. Under the contract, HMMH will provide the DEP and LURC with an independent analysis of proposed wind turbine project applications under these laws.

HMMH notes that it is currently conducting numerous noise assessments for communities and wind developers in the northeastern U.S. The firm’s work includes baseline sound monitoring, wind turbine noise emission modeling and project impact assessments.
