Public Notice Review of Boswell Wind LLC’s Request to Amend Permit DEQ/ISC 15-05

Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Wyoming Industrial Siting Council

 

Notice is hereby given that the Industrial Siting Division received an amendment request on May 25, 2018 from Boswell Wind LLC (Permittee). The Permittee is seeking approval to amend the bond for the Boswell Springs Project in Albany County.  The request reduces total bonding requirement from $34,500,000 to $9,326,000.  The request is due to a change in the project scope. Boswell provided an updated Decommissioning plan to the Industrial Siting Division (ISD) on April 13, 2018.  The updated plan considers a refined project design and layout, which includes a reduction in the number of turbines from 170 to 80, road length from 45.5 to 35 miles, and substations from 4 to 1.  The Permittee states that the smaller project footprint, results in a reduced decommissioning cost and is requesting a reduction of its bond amount stated in Condition #15 of its permit.       

Pursuant to Permit Condition #11, the Administrator is providing public notice of the requested change to permit DEQ/ISC 15-05.   The public may review a copy of the proposed amendment and decommissioning plan at the Office of the Industrial Siting Division in Cheyenne, Wyoming or online at:
