Fairhaven’s Base Slumps

December 3, 2013

Mark Curtis, reporting for ABC6 News in Providence, got the story in Fairhaven, where a one-fifth of an inch subsidence is causing concern (“More problems at Fairhaven wind turbines; Builder promises fix” 12/2/13).

Some believe the turbines were built on unstable wetlands. and will always be on unsafe ground.

Louise Barteau, a Fairhaven wind turbine opponent said, “If the foundation is not properly secured, I’ve always had a concern that these are so close to the bike path and I worry about public safety.”

So does the town:

“I spoke to the developer and they say this is under warranty right now, and they are making sure the turbine is shut down. Everything is safe. They’ve guaranteed me of the safety,” said Fairhaven Board of Selectmen Chairman, Charles Murphy, Jr.
