Interim report expected for Huron wind turbine study

About a hundred people have, so far, taken part in an ongoing study about the health effects of wind turbines in Huron County.

The study will examine reported negative health effects associated with turbines, including noise, vibration and light.

Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Clark says anyone living in Huron County within 10 kilometres of a wind turbine is eligible for the study.

Clark says an interim report is in the works, detailing some of the results gathered at this juncture in the study.

Those include the process for recruitment, how many people are taking part, and preliminary results from the registration survey.

Clark is encouraging those with summer homes near wind turbine sites to take part in the ongoing study.

In late 2014, Health Canada released the results of a study, which found no link between wind turbines and adverse health in those living nearby.

The study did, however, link turbine noise with increased levels of annoyance of nearby residents.
