Kingston resident claims independent testing of O'Donnell turbines proves non-compliance

Country Club Way resident Tim Dwyer wants to meet with selectmen to review what he describes as evidence that Mary O’Donnell’s three wind turbines are out of compliance with state noise regulations.

In a letter to selectmen Thursday, Dwyer requests a meeting June 4 to explain why he believes her three turbines are clearly out of compliance in violation of her contract with the town.

“It honestly lays out as clearly as I can that these turbines are out of compliance,” he said.

Dwyer and other residents affected by O’Donnell’s wind turbines hired their own acoustical engineer to perform sound measurement on her turbines. On the evening of April 2 and 3, he writes, Noise Control Engineering, Inc. of Billeric took sound measurements at four homes surrounding the O’Donnell turbines and at a reference location to establish ambient noise levels.

He said Noise Control Engineering concluded based on this testing that the O’Donnell wind turbines are generating noise that is in excess of the state’s broadband noise guideline.

“The evidence that the O’Donnell turbines are operating outside the boundaries of the DEP noise regulation is incontrovertible, and the effects are devastating,” he writes.“Residents are being forced to abandon their homes during periods of high wind speeds. Others, with no alternative, simply hunker down and try to survive day-to-day with a debilitating lack of sleep.”

Dwyer said being out of compliance would put O’Donnell in default of the town’s zoning bylaws and in violation of Wind Power Purchase Agreement she signed with the town.

Megawatt Wind Installations in Massachusetts Equal Unethical Human Experimentation

Next week the news will be that Kingston Massachusetts residents have paid for their own noise study which shows their turbines are out of compliance. The Town of Scituate is in the process of a noise study.

The State of Massachusetts has put its renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020 above the health of the residents.

Noise complaints started in 2010 in Falmouth and have continued with thousands of noise complaints to the local and state boards in many towns.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has admitted there are other noise issues from commercial wind turbines other than standard 1970s noise regulations.

The only conclusion now after the Mass DEP announcement of noise violations is Massachusetts is conducting medical experiments on the residential home owners around the wind turbines
Continuing to operate the wind turbines is unethical, non-consensual and illegal. The residents around the wind turbines are no longer residents they are "human test subjects."

The wind experiments include noise in different ranges and shadow flicker.

It's clear now Massachusetts state agencies and town boards have known since 2010 about noise and shadow flicker complaints. The state and local boards have ignored ethical, professional, and legal implications of continuing the experiments.

State and local officials have to look at the future. All four towns Scituate, Kingston, Falmouth and Fairhaven will be shown out of compliance . There continues to be a public outcry.

At what point does the continuation of government experiments on human subjects end up with congressional investigations and hearings.
