Revised Archaeological Resources Assessment for the Proposed Georgia Mountain Community Wind Project, Milton, Chittenden County, Vermont
Author(s): Charles Knight
Georgia Mountain Community Wind, LLC, through Vermont Environmental Research Associates (VERA) is proposing the Georgia Mountain Community Wind Project, Milton, Chittenden County and Georgia, Franklin County, Vermont (Figure 1). The proposed project will provide up to 8 megawatts of electrical capacity using 3-5 wind turbines located on the top of Georgia Mountain, east of Arrowhead Mountain Lake (see Figure 1). Additional project elements include an overhead transmission line that will connect the wind turbines to an existing 24 kV overhead transmission line along North Road to the west. The final configuration of the wind turbines along the ridge has not been determined. The wind turbines will be accessed from the south along the length of a pre-existing road that will require upgrading and a new road that will need to be constructed. This document represents a revised ARA, since a new access drive alignment was proposed that differed significantly from the originally proposed alignment. In addition, GPS coordinates of this proposed access road were provided to allow for an exact field inspection. Finally, this revision contains an expanded discussion on cultural resources near the proposed project.
The University of Vermont Consulting Archaeology Program (UVM CAP) conducted an Archaeological Resources Assessment (ARA) of the proposed project under Vermont State Statute 248 and did not identify any areas as archaeologically sensitive for precontact era Native American archaeological sites.
