Worried about impact of Sandow 5 'hum'
The smallest article on the front page of last week's Rockdale Reporter was the most important one to me.
It was about the "steady hum and low-frequency vibration" caused by the Sandow 5 electricity generating unit.
I live near Milano — a good 14 miles East of Sandow 5 — and I have heard low-frequency vibrations emitting from the direction of Sandow 5 for the last couple of weeks.
At first I thought it was some type of allergic reaction causing my ears to hum — but I am more disturbed that it is caused by Sandow 5 and it will be months before it is fixed.
Another power generating plant named High Bridge reported that air intake structures were caus- ing low-frequency vibrations, and the problem was fixed by specialists.
I worry about the impact of the low-frequency vibrations on my hearing — and I hope that our county government is monitoring the situation closely.
