Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The zoning is Heavy Agriculture (A3-G) and Open Space recreational (S1-G) which corresponds to the General Plan land use designations. Both zones have a Geothermal Overlay indicated by the "G" designator. In the A3-G zone, major geothermal projects are permitted by conditional use permit. The S1-G zone also permits electrical generation plants by conditional use permit. The proposed remedial activities do not change the type or intensity of the existing uses and would typically be allowed under existing conditional use permits.

Document Description
The DTSC has prepared this Initial Study to evaluate the potential environmental effects of a proposed Removal Action Workplan (RAW) for the CalEnergy Geothermal Facilities in Calipatrica, California (Site). The geothermal facilities are operated by CalEnergy Operating Corporation (CalEnergy). This project provides for approval and implementation of a RAW for remediation work at the CalEnergy facilities. DTSC is providing oversight for the Raw under the authority of the California Health and Safety Code Chapter 6.8.
