Proposed Action


The proposed action is for BLM to grant a 9-acre ROW in the western half of section 6, T. 18 S., R. 43 E., Willamette Meridian (33) to USG in accordance with the applicant‘s geothermal drilling application and Plan of Development (POD) dated March 31, 2011. The acreage under the ROW would allow for field adjustment of the surface disturbance associated with the 4.5 acres of access road and 4.5 acres of drill pad construction.

USG would construct, maintain, and operate roads, well drilling pads, exploratory geothermal wellheads, and associated pumping, power and control equipment. The proposed roads are designed to be 18 feet wide and 1.9 miles long (10,050 feet) with an average slope of 7%. Approximately 3,200 feet of access road was upgraded during a previous phase of the project and is not considered as new road construction, but will be an integral part of this project.
