MMS hosts meeting on offshore wind project.
The LIOWP proposal is for construction and operation of a 40-turbine wind energy facility on approximately eight square miles of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) off Long Island. The EIS will identify physical, biological, socioeconomic, and human resources in the project area and assess potential impacts of the project on these resources from preconstruction to decommissioning.
The scoping meetings were held July 10 and 11. MMS is also accepting written comments electronically, using the online comment form available on the MMS website or by mail to: Comments on EIS Scoping for the LIOWP Project, Minerals Management Service, MS 5412, 1201 Elmwood Park Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70123.
