“I’ve been informally told that, yes, they think it’s Zug Island,” Windsor-Tecumseh MPP and Liberal Finance Minister Dwight Duncan said Wednesday night.
“This is a major step forward,” said city Coun. Al Maghnieh, who has taken a lead role in pursuing the source of the so-called Windsor Hum. “Having said that, it’s going to be a bigger challenge dealing with an American company on American soil,” added the Ward 10 councillor, referring to U.S. Steel and the other private holdings on Zug.
Teri Gilbert, a spokeswoman for the Ontario Ministry of Environment, said that seismic monitors in Windsor in recent weeks traced the hum's source to the river's U.S. side.
"The data is very clear," she said. "It's coming from an area of approximately 1 square kilometer in or near Zug Island in the city of River Rouge." A square kilometer equals about four-tenths of a square mile.
