Two campers opposed to Green Mountain Power’s wind farm in Lowell were arrested Wednesday morning.
Some opponents of the project have been trying to block construction by camping within the safety perimeter of a blasting zone. The blasting must occur in order to build a road to the top of the mountain, where the utility plans to put up 21 turbines.
GMP got a temporary restraining order against the protestors. And Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s department cited Trevor Ring, 21, and David Martorana, 19, both students at Sterling College.
