Kingston officials have announced that the state’s sound study of the wind turbine built on town-owned land will begin on Oct. 7. Requested by the town’s Health Board after some residents complained that noise from the turbine was harming their health by interrupting their sleep and causing other problems, the study will be overseen by the state’s Department of Environmental Protection. The study was initially opposed by the Independence Turbine’s co-owner Kially Ruiz, who said that a similar study performed in Falmouth relied on subjective measures and exaggerated the sound produced by a turbine there. However, Ruiz later said he would cooperate with the state study.
