EA-1944: Draft Environmental Assessment

Ormat Technologies Brady Hot Springs Project, Churchill County, NV

This EA evaluates a proposal by Ormat Technologies, Inc. (Ormat) to use DOE and cost share funding to study the Brady Hot Springs geothermal Field 15-12RD well.  This is an EGS Demonstration project divided into three phases. During Phase 1, Ormat characterized the target well to prepare for stimulation activities in Phase 2,  Phase 2: Well Stimulation and Collection/Analysis of Stimulation Monitoring Data and Phase 3: Long-term testing of the system.  Phase 2 and 3 activities would occur at Ormat's Brady Hot Springs geothermal field in Churchill County, NV on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Bureau of Reclamation (BOR).  Since Phases 2 and 3 have the potential to impact subsurface resources, DOE must analyze the impacts associated with Phases 2 and 3.
