Jordanville: 68 turbines mapped out  

More studies – from sounds to the effects on birds – have been conducted to add to the draft environmental impact statement for the Jordanville wind farm project and will be released in early November.

The studies respond to comments made during public hearings on the original statement, which was released May 19.

Among the information to be released in November:

ä Revised turbine location map: provides the layout of a reduced 68-turbine project.

ä Second phase of the cultural resources study: investigates potential impacts to archeological sites and historical properties.

ä Visual impact assessment: includes additional representative photo simulations of what the turbines will look like.

ä Additional acoustic study: measures the current levels of sound and incorporates the sound the turbines would add.

ä Wetlands delineation report: determines location of wetlands and potential impacts from construction.

ä Hydro-geological study: analyzes the potential to impact groundwater and wells at the site.

ä Preliminary decommissioning plan: reviews the details for removing the project components following the life of the project.

Avian experts have also been contacted to perform a raptor study to survey migrating hawks and eagles at the Jordanville site. This study will be completed at the end of November with the report submitted in the final environmental impact study.

Community Energy, the company behind the project, has been working with experts on the designs for the 136-megawatt wind farm.
