State commission approves placement of 'met' towers

The Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission has approved Yarmouth's request to build a meteorological or "met" tower at two possible sites. Those sites, said DPW Director George Allaire, are Water Department property off Forest Road and the septage treatment plant. Only one site will be chosen for the tower, said Allaire.

Allaire said the town is still awaiting similar approval from the FAA.

The towers are necessary to collect data such as wind speed to determine whether the sites are good locations for individual wind turbines.
