Project details

  • Project Name: Big Level Wind Farm
  • Project Client: Big Level Wind LLC
  • Project Location: Hector Township, Potter County, Pennsylvania

A.D. Marble completed cultural resource surveys associated with the development of a wind farm project in Potter County, Pennsylvania. The studies consisted of completing an archaeological predictive model utilizing GIS to determine locations where Phase IB archaeological testing would be required. A historic reconnaissance survey was also conducted to identify all structures aged 50 years or more within the architectural Area of Potential Effect (APE). The architectural APE was determined by working with modeling software to determine where the turbines would be visible within a 5-mile radius of the proposed wind farm. The survey identified 175 properties meeting this age criteria and PA SHPO Abbreviated Historic Resource Survey Forms (HRSFs) were completed for each property.
