Project Description:
Terra-Gen Power LLC proposes to evaluate the geothermal resources that exist at their geothermal leases in Dixie Valley. The project area is directly south of the Coyote Canyon geothermal project area previously analyzed. This will include drilling of observation wells between 6,000 and 10,000 feet deep at as many as 15 locations. Each drill site would require construction of a drill pad 350 feet by 350 feet (2.8 acres). Access roads to drill sites would use existing roads to the extent possible. Up to 6 miles of new road would need to be constructed as well as improvements made to some of the existing roads. Disturbance would be limited to a maximum of approximately 25 acres for new access roads and approximately 42 acres for construction of well pads. One or more temporary water wells may also be drilled to supply water for exploration operations, including construction, dust abatement, and drilling activities. Disturbance for possible temporary water wells would be limited to a maximum of approximately 0.5 acres. A personnel camp would be maintained at an existing drill pad for support of drilling operations.
