Document Description
Haiwee Geothermal Leasing Area (HGLA) Draft EIS and Draft Amendment to the CA Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) Plan. The EIS evaluates various alternatives, including the No Action and No Plan Amendment alternatives, which includes an estimated 22,805 acres of BLM managed federal lands. The various alternatives will consider whether none, all, or part of the HGLA should be made available for geothermal exploration and development. In conjunction, the BLM will evaluate three pending lease proposals that total approximately 4,500 acres of federal mineral estate within the area. The leasing area is east of the Inyo National Forest, west of the China Lake East of the Inyo Forest, west of Naval Air Weapons Station, north of Little Lake, and south of the South Haiwee Reservoir.
