Lowell, Vt. – Nearly 150 protestors clashed with police at the Lowell Wind Project, Monday morning.

Protestors blocked route 100 in Lowell for two hours, preventing trucks carrying pieces of the project’s wind turbines.

Orleans and Lamoille County Sheriff Departments arrested two people, then were forced to call for back. Vermont State Police as well as Border Patrol and Fish and Wildlife responded.

“It’s an extreme tax on the law enforcement in the area,” VSP Lieutenant Kirk Cooper said.

The project has 21 turbines, with three blades a piece. Police and Green Mountain Power anticipate they could be on site until September.

“It’s just going to be a burden. You know, we’re contracted to the town of Lowell for five hours a week. So, it eats it up fast,” Orleans County Sheriff Kirk Martin said.
