  The Kingston Independence wind turbine violated the state’s noise policy two of the nights sound samples were taken as part of an acoustical monitoring study, according to an interim report.

 The turbine’s sound levels exceeded the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) noise threshold of 10 decibels over background during sampling March 2 and 15 at the 13 Schofield Road monitoring site, according to the interim report released Tuesday by DEP to the Kingston Board of Health and a list of other interested parties.
