Document Description
The goal of the "Mono County Thermal Biomass Project" is to sustainably utilize biomass resulting from activities associated with reducing catastrophic wildfire risk (including defensible space treatments), improving forest habitat and resilence, treating forest pests, and restoring meadow structure and function. A secondary goal is to provide a model in California of a successful thermal biomass project, potentially paving the way for other thermal projects and expanding the utilization of forest-sourced biomass. The project proposes to remove and replace the current, outdated, and inefficient propane boiler system at the County Road Shop and Parks/Facilities building in Bridgeport with a new 2.5 MMBtu/hour or less thermal biomass boiler system.
