Horizon Wind announces release of environment report

The next phase of the proposed Nor'Wester View wind farm project is underway. Horizon Wind Inc. has announced the release of it's environmental report, and now there will be a 2 month period where the public can review the draft findings. The company's Nhung Nguyen  says they went over and above what was required in putting together the document.  As an example, she sited the noise study.  Nguyen says under the province's Green Energy Act they weren't required to include that, however because there was considerable public interest in that aspect, they did it anyway.  The first of two public meetings on the report takes place August 4th at the Blake Community Hall in the Municipality of Neebing.  The following day there will be a meeting at the Lakehead Labour Centre in Thunder Bay.  The entire 700 page report can be found by clicking here.
