The response to the Huron County Health Unit study into possible health impacts of wind turbines has been surprisingly low at this point.

Just over 100 people have registered to take part in the study.

Dr. Erica Clark says they want to hear from anyone who lives within 10 kilometres of a turbine, and they want to hear from people who believe the turbines have impacted their health as well as people who say they have not suffered any negative health impact.

The deadline for registering as a participant for the study is October 31.

Dr. Clark says copies for all of the materials for the study are on the Huron County Health Unit website by just clicking on the wind turbine button. You can also get a hard copy of the documentation at the Huron County Health Unit office or at any Huron County library branch.
