Save The River Reiterates Position on Wind Development Within St. Lawrence River Valley

May 9th, 2016 | Posted by admin
CLAYTON, N.Y. – Due to recent press accounts regarding the organization’s position on wind
development within the Saint Lawrence River valley, Save The River Executive Director and Upper Saint
Lawrence Riverkeeper, Lee Willbanks, issued the following statement:
“Contrary to published reports, Save The River’s position on wind development has not changed.
Rather, this position has always been clear.
“Our organization believes the Saint Lawrence River Valley is in need of a comprehensive
region‐wide, cross‐border assessment of the cumulative environmental impact of wind that
should be developed by agencies from U.S. and Canada. Furthermore, the studies resulting from
this assessment must be published and subjected to extensive review and public consultation.
“This is not a blanket rejection of wind development.
“Nor, is it a blind statement of approval.
“It is a call for deliberate consultation and study.
“Any other characterization of Save The River’s position is erroneous and should be corrected
immediately.”
Save the River’s position statement on industrial wind development can be found on the organization’s
website.
