Fairhaven Officials Silent On Wind Turbines Mitigation Pan

 

TSM

The debate over wind turbines in the Town of Fairhaven is expected to continue Monday night.  According to published reports, a new turbine mitigation plan has been submitted to the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Health, but neither board has made it public just yet.  Representatives of both boards say it will be discussed Monday night. 

Two town-approved wind turbines off Arsene St. have been the focus of controversy for the past two years.  A citizens group, WindWise, was opposed to the siting of the turbines, because of their impact on nearby residential neighborhoods.  WindWise and area residents filed numerous noise and health complaints with the Board of Health, but a public hearing has yet to be held.  

Last winter, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection found five violations of the state’s noise regulations while testing the turbines.  The turbine operator, Fairhaven Wind, submitted the mitigation plan as a follow-up to an earlier plan in July.
