Document Description
The proposed project would be a pumped storage project using two existing mining pits near the town of Eagle Mountain, California. Water would be pumped from a lower/pit reservoir to an upper pit/reservoir during periods of low demand to generate peak energy during periods of high demand. To obtain the needed storage volume at the existing upper pit, two dams would be constructed along its perimeter. The lower pit has enough storage volume, so no dams would be needed. Eagle Crest is proposing to initially fill the reservoirs with either water from wells in the nearby Chuckwalla Basin or from surface water purchased from willing sellers elsewhere and transferred to the project through the Colorado River Aqueduct. Reservoir losses would be replaced by water from the nearby wells.
