Renowned acoustician Dr Bob Thorne has done that at numerous wind developments across Victoria.

Bob found people’s health seriously impacted.

Associate Professor Con Doolan from the University of Adelaide did the same at Waterloo.

He found the “annoyance” symptoms correlated DIRECTLY with low frequency noise, at specific levels, which the residents said was coming from the wind turbines.

Con couldn’t verify it came from the turbines because TRUenergy would not cooperate with turning the turbines off for comparative measuresment.  But locals certainly know the difference between wind in the trees, wind turbines, and noise from a fridge.

Dr  Campbell Gemmell (CEO of the SA EPA) said during and after a meeting with Waterloo residents that he would make sure there was on/off testing.  The SA EPA staff member who met with Waterloo residents to do upcoming testing at Waterloo, starting on Monday, confirmed the EPA were going to do it and that TRUenergy executives in Melbourne had promised to do so.   Continue reading, here…..
