Last Thursday night, the DeWitt County Board approved a sound study agreement with Tech Environmental, INC. for the Alta Farms II wind project in northwest DeWitt County.
Board Chair Terry Ferguson on the WHOW Morning Show Friday told Regional Radio News this is the next step in the process of the wind farms construction. He explains they need to provide the County with a sound study for all four seasons.
Thursday night, the Board was questioned why there wasn't a sound study done before the wind farm was put up. Ferguson explains their mitigations if the sound study turns up any issues for property owners near the turbines.
According to Ferguson, Tech Environmental will select six sites to study and indicates the wintertime is when the noise is most audible because of the often frozen ground and crops being out of the ground.
