"We understand their concern. Our officials have consistently raised the issue with the American counterparts and we'll continue to engage and work to find a solution."

The source of the Windsor Hum, which sounds like an idling train engine or diesel transport truck, has been traced to Zug Island in River Rouge, Mich., directly across from west Windsor, according to a federally funded report released in 2014.
