Document Description
Orni-5, LLC. has requested a Right of Entry permit from California State Parks, Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (OWSVRA) for the purposes of a seismic study to support proposed geothermal exploration, as defined in the County of Imperial's Mitigated Negative Declaration (SCH #2019119033). The Project would occur over a 23.5 square mile area near Salton City, CA and approximately 20% of the project area is owned by California State Parks. During the seismic study, specialized vehicles would drive throughout the project area, stopping at designated points to generate source vibrations that would be captured by receiving stations. The data will be used to refine the placement of geothermal exploration wells to maximize potential resources. The Right of Entry permit would only apply to lands owned by California State Parks and would grant approval for vehicular access to requested routes of travel (both designated and undesignated) throughout the SVRA. No exploratory wells would be approved with this permit.
