Steamboat Geothermal Well(s) 16-32 Project
Ormat Technologies, Inc.
Washoe County, Nevada


 
Ormat Nevada Inc. (Ormat) is proposing to construct, operate, and maintain the Steamboat Geothermal Well 16-32 Project within the existing Steamboat Geothermal Unit in Washoe County, Nevada (herein called the Proposed Action or the project). The Proposed Action would include the construction of one (1) geothermal well pad and the drilling and testing of up to three (3) geothermal wells all from the same pad, improvement of an existing access road, and installation of one additional geothermal fluid pipeline. The wells would include one or more of the following: temperature gradient well, observation/slim well, and full-size production/injection well, for a maximum of three wells drilled from one well pad.

The Proposed Action would be located within federal geothermal lease N-12085, administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Section 32, Township 18 North, Range 20 East, Mount Diablo Baseline and Meridian (Figure 1). The surface management of the project area is provided by the Carson Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service (Forest Service). Memorandum of Understanding WO300-2006-08 between the BLM and Forest Service defines the BLM as the lead agency for permit review and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance, and the Forest Service as a cooperating agency.
