PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Providence is getting three new wind turbines that will be used to power a city wastewater plant.

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed is expected to be on hand Monday morning to "celebrate" the completion of the turbine project at the Field's Point Wastewater Treatment Facility near the city's waterfront.

The Narragansett Bay Commission built the turbines at a cost of $14 million. Federal clean water funds were used for the project.

Reed's office says he plans to speak at the event and discuss how clean energy sources can help protect Narragansett Bay from environmental pollution.
