    Wind versus Water: the impact of ridgeline wind on water resources  

    Source:  Grafton Woodlands Group and Friends of Windham | Environment, Presentations, Vermont

    Civil and environmental engineer Geoffry Goll of Princeton Hydro will discuss the Saxtons River watershed and the potential impact of industrial wind. The focus will be based on his direct relevant experience with other wind projects and the impacts of Vermont’s high-elevation headwater sources of water for people and the ecology.

    Friday, March 18, 6:30 pm
    Grafton (Vermont) Elementary School gymnasium

    Goll will highlight the extreme difficulty of controlling stormwater run-off from the high-impact, high-elevation construction sites.

    He will describe the risks associated with the permit conditions and subsequent lack of enforcement by Vermont in permitting of the wind turbine project on Lowell Mountain.

    He will also discuss the downstream risks imparted by such projects – including increased flooding, stream bank erosion, and sedimentation on culverts, bridges, and communities.

    Sponsored by the Grafton Woodlands Group and Friends of Windham. The public is invited. Refreshments will be served.
