The closure of the White Pines Wind Project is complete according to the proponent’s website (http://www.whitepineswindfarm.ca/).
WPD’s most recent monthly reports states ” December 15,2021
In November, the planned decommissioning planned civil works were completed, and project moved to the monitoring period.”
We believe this means that the access roads that haven’t been removed will remain as they are now. The only work that remains now is, in conjunction with the County, the evaluation of the condition of the roads. When the evaluation has been completed, the roads will be restored to their original condition if required. Additionally, some restoration of the trees along some of the routes will also be required.
