A precedent has been set which I hope will be useful internationally to put pressure on all the other noise regulatory authorities to follow suit

This marks an unprecedented move by the Environmental Protection Agency in South Australia to begin testing residences near Waterloo wind farm.The investigation will include the measurement of infrasound and low frequency noise, down to 0.25 Hz, inside and outside homes, with “on off” testing.

It will require the cooperation and provision of operational data which wind development operators have so far refused to provide to any independent researchers, anywhere in the world.In the words of resident Mary Morris: “This is a huge step in the right direction for people who live near wind farms.”
