This is quite amazing. The Feds are opening their tight purse! Probably only a 2-bit operation, since I can't see the necessary funds really being available. As well, the solution may involve lobbing cannon shot over the river, and I can't see that happening.
If I went after it, in the old days, with my infinite 'old company' resources, I would budget it at 150K, with most of it being money to pay myself my ridiculous salary and pension. I always had to cover myself with projects. Realizing that it is harmonic noise, and thus immune to standard seismometers, I would work up some specialized arrays. The real question is whether I would have to go borehole, and that would up the cost.
Obviously, we would have to do something over the river, and I would get a local university involved. You can't expect any cooperation from the factories, since they are evil. :) A factory less evil would want to prove its innocence.
That I why I'm too expensive to live. :( People just want to spend enough to make it look like they are doing something. That was the old company for the last few years I was there, and the main reason I jumped.
Update: Looking at the news, they got 10 months pay for 1 or 2 people, but just doing air-acoustic. With the huge university overheads, that must be a few hundred K.
Update2: OM frickin G! It's only 60K for 2 years. http://www.ourwindsor.ca/news-story/1492040--60-000-study-launched-to-investigate-windsor-hum-/
