Coast Guard Submits Wind Farm Assessment

Sunday, January 18, 2009

The U.S. Coast Guard announced on Jan. 15 that it completed and delivered its recommendations for the offshore renewable energy installation proposed for Nantucket Sound to the Minerals Management Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

The Coast Guard is a cooperating agency providing input in its areas of expertise to the MMS, which is the lead permitting agency for the proposed installation and has approval authority for that project. The report, "U.S. Coast Guard Assessment of Potential Impacts to Marine Radar as it Relates to Marine Navigation Safety from the Nantucket Sound Wind Farm as Proposed by Cape Wind, LLC," allows the Coast Guard to provide its recommendations regarding potential impacts the proposed wind farm may have on maritime navigation safety, security and environmental response and Coast Guard missions.

The Coast Guard's recommendations will be made public as part of the final environmental impact statement released by that agency. The public may comment on the FEIS once it is published.
