The dozens of new wind turbines lining the landscape north of White Lake are highly visible signs of economic and energy development.
But construction of the 101-turbine PrairieWinds project and seven-turbine South Dakota Wind Partners project also has left an indelible footprint on the county’s designated haul roads, created dust control problems and caused property damage in the past three months, according to some local residents.
Pete and Judy Licht live along 241st Street — one of the main haul roads used for the project by Wanzek Construction, based in Fargo, N.D.
