Dear Karen

I have been out of the field for some time now but do recall the case in
Invercargill where a factory was operating 24 hours a day and nearby
residents were complaining of 'ill effects' from what may have been low
frequency noise. It is possible to measure low frequency noise but you
would need special equipment. I would suggest contacting the local city
council Environmental Noise Control Officer. If this person doesn't exist
contact OSH or the Health Department in Wellington for advice. Is there any
idea what the noise source could be?
