Proposed Action

Allow a geophysical (seismic) survey to determine underground structure (faults, fractures, and stratigraphy) and geologically locate geothermal resources. Additional Public Information: Agua Caliente and Optim have applied to conduct a geophysical (seismic) survey on approximately 1100 acres of public land. This would involve the placement of receivers, or geophones, that are laid out in a grid on the surface of the Earth. The geophones are spikes about 6” long with receivers that will be connected via seismic lines that transmit the recorded data. The data is gathered as vibroseis trucks vibrate the ground at pre-determined surface locations to generate seismic signals. The seismic signals are composed of ground vibrations that the geophones record
