The first set of permits for Deepwater Wind’s five-turbine wind farm off Block Island have been approved. The Journal reports the state Department of Environmental management has approved the water quality certificates that will allow dredging and marine construction for the wind farm and cables that will run from Block Island to Narragansett. There are still many permits needed to be approved before they can build the wind farm. The Coastal Resources Management Council will meet Tuesday night to consider Deepwater’s application. Recommendations for approval have come from the Council staff and a subcommittee.
