Wang Z, Evaluation of Wind Farm Noise Policies in South Australia

Zhenghua Wang. 2011

A population noise impact survey carried out by a Masters student from Adelaide University, Zhenhua Wang, at Waterloo wind project, South Australia.

Mr Wang surveyed all households within 5km of wind turbines at the Waterloo wind development, and found that over 50% of residents who responded were moderately or very affected by the wind turbine noise, with 38% stating they had adverse health effects including sleep deprivation and headaches.

Mr Wang was awarded his degree on the basis of this research, but unfortunately the original masters dissertation has not ever been made publicly available, for reasons which have never been explained to the participating residents of Waterloo by either Mr Wang or Adelaide University.
