CA Desert Conservation Area Plan (1980, as amended). Multiple Use Class M.
Note: Review Per Lead
This Plan Amendment/ FEIS addresses two decisions by the US Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management: possible approval of an amendment to the CA Desert Conservation Area Plan to recognize the site of the proposed Palen Solar Power Project as appropriate for the proposed use; and the possible approval of a right-of-way grant to Palen Solar I for construction, operation and decommissioning of a solar thermal electricity generation facility. The Agency Preferred Alternative is to grant the ROW to Palen Solar I for the PSPP, which covers approximately 4,360 acres, managed primarily by the BLM, and which would generate 500 megawatts of electricity. The PA/FEIS identifies impacts of the Agency Preferred Alternative, including impacts related to biological resources, cultural resources, land use, visual resources, and hydrology, water quality, and water use. Many of these adverse impacts can be avoided or substantially reduced based on compliance with applicable laws, ordinances, regulations and standards, and compliance with measures provided in the PA/FEIS.
