T H E DA L L E S, O re. (AP) — A group of residents opposes a wind farm planned for the Columbia River Gorge, saying the turbines could harm wildlife and cause health problems. The group, Families for Sevenmile Hill, is also worried about increasing noise and decreasing property values.
Massachusetts-based UPC Wind wants to build the $80 million, 60-megawatt wind farm west of The Dalles.
Krista Kisch, director of business development for UPC’s West region, said opponents had ‘‘misinterpreted the scientific analyses from the application for site certification.’’ She called the group’s conclusions ‘‘erroneous.’’
