USFS and term grazing permittee) from the Upper Basalt Geothermal Exploration Project ROD.
GRZ-1: If required by the authorized officer, the operator shall fence active pads sufficiently to prevent access by grazing animals.
GRZ-3: The Authorized Officer, in conjunction with the Forest Service, will identify alternate bedgrounds or other permittee use areas, if exploration-drilling operations displace the permittee's use. The geothermal operator will be responsible for reclaiming all new or old bedgrounds that are abandoned as a result of drilling operations, including revegetation and weed control., including revegetation and weed control. +
