WARD COUNTY - It's a first for Ward County, two wind turbines will soon be rotating high above the Monahans area and city leaders are planning a celebration.
The turbines will start work this coming week.
Monahans officials, Economic Development, and neighbors will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Economic Development Office tells us, the turbines will power the waste water treatment facility sitting right off the Interstate.
The project started in November and community leaders hope this will not only save money at the treatment center, but also open up new opportunities for wind energy in Ward County.
