Document Description
It is the intent of the applicant to drill, sample, flow test and monitor up to six of the exploratory wells to a depth of ~6,500 ft for determining the potential geothermal resource in this area. Each site will be prepared to create a level pad for the drill rig, and a graded surface for the support equipment. Project activities will also include the improvement or construction of access roads to proposed well sites. Containment basins will be constructed at each site for the containment and temporary storage of drilling mud and cuttings and storm water runoff from the constructed site. Each containment basin will be ~100 ft by 250 ft by 7 ft deep, and will hold ~420,000 gallons with a 2 ft freeboard.
