From approximately November 8 to November 14, subject to weather conditions, Commonwealth Wind subconsultants Mott MacDonald and ADT will be performing four (4) geotechnical boring samples via the vessel ‘Vision’ off of Dowses Beach. The approved hours for this work are 7am to 7pm daily.

The purpose of this work is to study the soil/sand conditions under the sea bed to determine the viability of the project’s plans to use horizontal directional drilling to install cables from the offshore wind generation facility under Dowses Beach to make landfall, and proceed via duct bank instillation under public roads through the Town of Barnstable.
