Blazer said while the initial months provided little data with regard to noise by the turbines, later conditions in October and November allowed for “enormous” amounts of data to be collected.
Board member Kevin Green of District 2 questioned the preliminary results.
“Just because they are within regulation doesn’t mean sound waves are not impacting people,” he told Blazer.
Blazer acknowledged that the current noise limits for the state were written before the age of wind turbines — a fact, he added, is a concern among some.
Family members from both the Hartke and Miles families made references to the disturbance by low frequency sounds caused by the turbines. Blazer, during his comments to the board, said he gave the Hartke family attorney a copy of the study Tuesday afternoon and had not seen mention of low frequency problems in the complaints filed since February.
