Noise Complaints

Thirty-three northern Vermont residents who live near a newly constructed wind-power project on Lowell Mountain have complained to the state about what they're calling "horrendous noise."

Barbara Stone, who lives about 2½ miles from the project, says the spinning turbine blades create a noise that sounds like a jet engine.

Don Nelson of Lowell says he and his wife, Shirley, could have gotten 100 signatures on the letter to the Public Service Department. He says it sounds like "a big jet engine landing at an airport."
