Wind turbine noise severe, Kincardine residents ask for state of emergency to be declared

Residents with health problems linked to 115 Enbridge wind turbines ask Council for Municipality of Kincardine Council today to assist in forcing Enbridge to take accountability for the impact of their operation on the people who are living among the wind power project.

The delegation is asking the Council to adopt a resolution that includes:

  • Recognition that the health and well-being of some residents are being affected by the wind turbines
  • Order Enbridge to cease turbine operations and to identify a senior executive to work with the Municipality in resolving these issues.
  • Declare a public emergency in Kincardine in order to qualify for provincial funding to relocate health-affected home owners.
  • Request that the Federal government stop subsidies to the project under the ecoENERGY program.
  • Request provincial follow-up on cases reported to the Grey-Bruce Health Board as required by provincial law.
  • Commission independent testing for low frequency noise/infrasound in all affected homes.

According to spokesperson Rachel Thompson, “These health problems are real – people are unable to sleep or lead normal lives. Many are experiencing a repetitive vibrating or pulsing sensation throughout their bodies, especially in the head and chest when the turbines are operating. That’s Low Frequency Noise and it feels like torture. Their lives are being ruined.”

Enbridge’s corporate values statement talks about taking accountability for the company’s actions and not blaming others, Thompson notes. “It’s time for Enbridge to demonstrate these values in this community and address the environmental problems being created by this wind power generation project.”
