Dr. David Michaud at the St. Columban ERT Hearing
“Knowledge gaps on noise, infrasound”
In testimony before the ERT Hearing on the St. Columban Project last week, Dr. David Michaud, the Principal investigator for the Heath Canada study into wind turbine noise, appeared to contradict Sylvia Davis, a lawyer for the MOE who questioned the existence of low frequency noise generated by wind turbines at the Ostrander Point ERT.
Dr. Michaud testified that there was a ‘knowledge gap’ in respect to low frequency noise emitted by wind turbines. International standard used to assess noise do not consider low frequency noise as they do not deal with sound 31.5Hz.
Dr. Michaud also stated that the knowledge gaps relative to both audible and low frequency noise from wind turbines were sufficient to qualify for Health Canada funding. He stated that to receive funding, a project…
