Proposed Action

In May 2007, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Humboldt River Field Office (HRFO), (formerly known as the Winnemuca Field Office), approved an Environmental Assessment (EA) for Ormat’s Jersey Valley Geothermal Exploration Project. The project included the drilling and testing of observation and full-sized wells and building access roads, as appropriate. The five currently approved wells under this EA (NV063-EA06-100) are: 18-27, 81-28, 44-28, 86-29 and 33-33 (well 86-29 was subsequently relocated to well site 14-27) (see Figure 2). Total surface disturbance associated with the Jersey Valley Exploration Project was less than 10 acres.

Data Completion Notes

Argonne has EA file - maybe in GDR?
