DNA at Dixie Valley Geothermal Area for Geothermal/Well Field,

DNA for Production Wells and Temporary Above Ground Water Pipeline at Dixie Valley Geothermal Area for Geothermal/Well Field

Proposed Action

TGP Coyote Canyon, LLC proposes to construct a temporary, above-ground, 6-inch polyurethane water pipeline to transport freshwater from an existing water well, near the Dixie Valley Geothermal Plant, to geothermal well 36-14 for drilling operations. Approximately 9,850 feet of pipe has already been constructed (authorized by a previously approved Sundry Notice) to serve the 76-14 geothermal well. An additional 4,100 feet would be added to reach the 36-14 well pad. The pipeline would be placed just outside the south ditch of the Dixie Valley Road. The pipeline would cross existing roads through 12-inch culverts that would be buried in the road surface to allow vehicles to cross over the pipe without crushing it. No new surface disturbance outside of the previously disturbed road crossings would be created by the pipeline. Some scuffing of the surface may occur during construction or if the pipe shifts. Only freshwater would be transported through the pipeline. The pipeline would be constructed entirely on public lands. A 13,950-foot long by 10-foot wide right-of-way (3.020 acres) would accommodate construction, maintenance, and removal of the pipeline. The right-of-way would have a five year grant term.
