Huron County Health Unit investigating wind turbine health complaints

The Huron County Health Unit is launching an investigation into reported health effects from wind turbines.

This is in response to feedback from a number of Huron County residents reporting negative health impacts from living close to Industrial Wind Turbines.

East Huron resident Gerry Ryan was part of the group that made a presentation of health concerns to the Health Unit last week and he says they were well received by health officials.

“We presented 26 health impact statements, they ranged from sleeplessness to headaches to migraines, bloody noses, heart palpitations right across the board,” says Ryan.

The Health Unit investigation will happen in two phases, the first being the launch of an online survey in May to collect information on the number of complaints and/or concerns from residents.

Ryan and his colleagues are ecstatic that somebody is at least doing something to address the many concerns of numerous residents in Huron County.

“There absolutely is noise but there is also what’s known as infrasound. Nobody, the Ontario Government, the wind industry is doing anything about the infrasound and they knew it was going to cause problems,” adds Ryan.

Infrasound is sound that is more often felt rather than heard.

The Huron County Health Unit is the first in the province to launch an investigation into health concerns from industrial wind turbines.

Ryan notes that Phase 2 of the Health Unit investigation may involve actual acoustic testing both inside and outside of affected homes.
