November 26, 2022 - Low frequency noise generated by natural gas pipelines and infrastructure in central Alberta is real and conditions
have returned to a worst possible case scenario. Strong pulsations begin around 11:00 pm and continue to increase thoughout night time sleeping hours. The pulsations are so strong that normal
background noise like a TV on or music playing does little if anything to drown out the sound. I can actually feel the pulsations of low frequency sound penetrating my body and my brain. Only someone
who can sense these vibrations would have any understanding of how it affects the human body. I'm not sure if it would be better to be completely oblivious to the fact that a commercial entity is
willingly subjecting people to something that is known to be harmful or not ? The incidence of health issues that I am aware of in my locality is frightening to say the least.
As of this date, low frequency noise generated by natural gas pipeline compressors and infrastructure in the Nevis Alberta area continues to assault every living thing. The duration and intensity of low frequency noise continues to follows "Line Packing " and "Gas Days". At times, Albertans living in this region can enjoy very short periods of little or no LFN and at other times the pulsations range from mild to extremely intense.
In terms of sleep disturbance, not much has changed and the hours of 12 midnight until 4 am are very seldom quiet and peaceful. It is as if the Industry and Government truly believe that continuing to do physical harm to unsuspecting Albertans by allowing unmitigated low frequency noise is an acceptable option.
At this point there is no system of corelation in our Health Care system to monitor negative effects of low frequency noise within the population at large even though by nature, a signifigant health risk certainly exists. The large number of natural gas compressors and the amount of infrastructure in Alberta most certainly represents a potential threat to the well being of every living thing, however Government and Industry continue to pretend that there is no threat.
Once again there is absolutely no doubt about the source and origin of this dangerous low frequency noise pollution. This amounts to willfully harming the general public who live in central Alberta by both the tone deaf United Conservative Government and the equally ignorant natural gas industry.
The sitting UCP Government and the fossil fuel Industry continue to choose to pretend this is not happening. Failing to act in the best interest of the citizens of Alberta and allowing this to continue contravenes the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights

Myself and most people living in central Alberta are being bombarded by low frequency noise for the majority of any given 24 hour period. Nightly sleep disturbances and strong low frequncy pulsations are taking a significant toll on me personally with tinnitus flares ups, headaches and irritabilty.
- the Hum is alive and well in central Alberta with only occasional periods of quiet towards the end of the day after the compression satisfies daily gas nominations. Nightly "Line packing" is starting around 11 pm and low frequency noise levels peak between 2 am and 4 am and remain steady until late afternoon/evening.
