Bluewater council hears from Wind Concerns Ontario

Councillors with the Municipality of Bluewater now have a better understanding of a wind turbine study that’s just beginning.

A director with Wind Concerns Ontario appeared before council Monday night to outline the study they are conducting with the University of Waterloo and the Huron County Health Unit.

Warren Howard explained the goal of the study is to determine if there is a link between wind turbine noise and the symptoms being reported by people who live near them.

Many of the studies so far have been focused on audible noise, but Howard says there are other types of noise created by wind turbines and their study will look at the full spectrum of noises.

As part of the presentation, Howard asked for a letter of support from Bluewater council, and that was granted.

Howard is hoping they’ll be able to collect significant data within six months from which they can draw some conclusions.
