Just Over 100 People Have Joined Huron Wind Turbine Study

Huron County | by Fadi Didi  

Health unit officials still looking for participants, who have until October 31st to take part.

Weeks before submissions close on a Huron County wind turbine study, just over a hundred respondents have taken part.

Health Unit officials continue to look for participants for their research on the health effects of turbines.

The study from the Huron County Health Unit will examine areas not touched on by a 2015 Health Canada study, which examined the health effects on those living within earshot of wind turbines.

Epidemiologist, Dr. Erica Clark, says any Huron County residents living within 10 kilometres of a wind turbine are invited to take part.

Surveys can be picked up at the health unit offices in Clinton, at any branch of the Huron County library, or at the health unit's website.

Clark says the deadline to take part in the study is October 31st.

Information will continue to be collected from participants in November, with analysis beginning in December.

Clark tells us a full report on the health effects of wind turbines in Huron County will be completed before the end of 2019.
