The North Dakota Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the Public Service Commission, developed a wind energy restoration and reclamation oversight program connecting landowners and tenants experiencing wind energy reclamation and restoration issues with an independent ombudsman.

After notification of the issue, the ombudsman will conduct an on-site examination with the landowner or tenant to assess the situation. The ombudsman will contact the wind energy company detailing the findings and work with all parties to resolve the issues in a satisfactory and timely manner.

The program also provides technical assistance, support, and outreach to landowners/tenants. If you are a landowner or tenant and need help with wind energy restoration and reclamation, please fill out the online form:  (see the attached form – this form will need to be recreated on the website to allow for electronic submissions – also the form is different from the pipeline program).  

If you are a landowner or tenant and need help with wind energy restoration and reclamation please fill out the online form:
