NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
Mammoth-Pacific, L.P. (MPLP), proposes to conduct, operate and maintain the Basalt Canyon Geothermal Pipeline Project on portions of Federal Geothermal Leases CA-11667 and CA-14408, located within the Inyo National Forest. The purpose of the project is to develop and produce up to a maximum of 4,000 gpm of geothermal fluid from these two federal geothermal leases and deliver this geothermal fluid to the existing MPLP power plants. The project would consist of the construction and operation of up to 1.8 miles of nominal 16-inch diameter insulated, welded steel pipe, which would be constructed above ground on low piers and underground where necessary to cross under existing Forest Service roads and U.S. Highway 395. The pipeline would originate from the two geothermal wells which have been or will be drilled, completed and tested from two of five well sites previously approved as part of the Basalt Canyon Geothermal Exploration Project.
