Turbine project moving ahead

Salem to do final noise tests; officials committed to Winter Island location


Barz-Snell said he is certain the study will show just the opposite — that the turbine will not produce significant noise and poses no health threat.

Although these acoustic tests have dragged on for more than a year, City Planner Lynn Duncan said the city wouldn’t be doing them if it were not committed to a wind turbine on Winter Island, a project that officials say will generate annual revenues of $200,000 to $700,000.

“We’re committed to getting the information we need to make an informed decision and to provide the citizens with that information, as well,” Duncan said.
