Fairhaven Turbines a Noise Violation

TSM

According to preliminary results of a sound study conducted by the State Department of Environmental Protection, Fairhaven’s two industrial-sized wind turbines are in violation of Massachusetts noise regulations.

According to published reports, D E P Deputy Commissioner Martin Suuberg told the Board of Health Tuesday night that noise from the turbines exceeded state regulations in five of the 24 periods during which the D E P conducted testing which began last summer. That announcement prompted opponents to demand the turbines be shut down.

The D E P still needs to collect more noise samples at varying wind speeds before the test is complete. Board of Health Chairman Peter Deterra said that he would not make a decision about shutting down the turbines until he could meet with the Selectman and Town Counsel.
