Offshore Wind update 
 "Monhegan Energy Task Force writes that according to the UME's contractor, 
 "the survey along the proposed sub-sea cable path from the windmill site to to land will begin no sooner than February 2018. Link to US DOE site for Maine AquaVentus project 

"Monhegan energy task force writes that, according to the UME's contractor, "the survey along the proposed sub-sea cable path from the windmill site to to land will begin no sooner than February 2018. Final survey area is still being finalized. Logistics with survey contractor are being finalized".
"
UME's survey manager, Matt Nixon, will reach out to Monhegan fishermen to schedule a meeting with them on the Island to go over survey logistics, timing, and other details. This will likely need to be early January immediately after the holidays, but Matt will work with the fishermen to determine best timing for them.""
