Comment sought on Glasgow project

The Bureau of Land Management and the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation are seeking public comment on a revised proposal by Wind Hunter LLC related to the development of the Valley County Wind Energy Project north of Glasgow.

The revision proposes that Wind Hunter LLC scale back the size of the proposed wind farm from 500 megawatts to 170 megawatts and the related transmission line from 230 kilovolts to 69 kilovolts.

The agencies have released a supplemental environmental assessment and a draft finding of no significant impact that address the modified proposal.

These documents can be viewed or downloaded online [1]. Request a copy by calling John Fahlgren at the BLM’s Glasgow Office at 228-3757 or e-mail john_fahlgren@blm.gov.
Submit written comments by May 4 to the BLM’s Glasgow Field Station, P.O. Box 871, Glasgow, MT 59230.
