More Desert Damage from Ocotillo Wind Energy Project?

On September 6, this photo was taken by Pam Wilmers in a private aircraft 5000 feet above a chain of sites carved into BLM land at the west end of Ocotillo Valley as part of the Ocotillo Wind Energy Project.

The access roads and sites are a point of concern to residents because they run north–south directly across the natural drainage coming into the valley from the Jacumba Mountains.

A group of village citizens will be attempting to obtain a temporary restraining order tomorrow, September 7, in San Diego federal court to  stop the damage to the desert.

The project is to include 111 towers almost 500' tall along SR-2 where I-8 enters the Imperial Valley.
