Public Info Meeting about offshore wind power. “The BOEM meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, 717 General Booth Boulevard, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451.”


The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has released an Environmental Assessment (EA) of the proposed Virginia Offshore Wind Technology Advancement Project. The EA addresses the societal and environmental consequences associated with the construction, operation, maintenance, and eventual decommission of the turbines and cables that will deliver power to shore in Virginia Beach. The impacts of noise, presence of structures, bottom disturbance, vessel traffic, and onshore activities are considered.

The comment period is open until January 2. Submission details are listed on the BOEM website. For more information, BOEM will conduct a public information meeting to explain the proposed activities analyzed in the EA and provide additional opportunity for public comment.
