Proposed Action

Calpine Corporation has submitted a Plan of Utilization (POU) to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to develop a 49.9 megawatt (MW) geothermal power plant and wellfield and 24-mile, 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line. This project, known as the Fourmile Hill Geothermal Development Project, would be located in the Glass Mountain Known Geothermal Resource Area (KGRA) on the Klamath and Modoc National Forests, in Siskiyou and Modoc Counties, California. The Glass Mountain KGRA represents one of the only remaining undeveloped KGRAs in North America with a demonstrated geothermal resource.


Data Completion Notes

Argonne has EA file - maybe in NGDS?

8/26/2013 - Not sure what above note refers to. This is an EIS, not an EA. The Final EIS is already here and uploaded. Mitigation measures not fully populated. OpenEI wouldn't take any Wildlife mitigation past 4.3.8.j. Same with Visual mitigation from 4.9.5a onward. Human Health and Safety mitigation measures need to be added once that category is added.
