The BLM has scheduled open houses in Saguache and Alamosa for comments on potential geothermal leases


Here’s the link to the announcement from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Geothermal Energy Leasing Environmental Assessment

The Bureau of Land Management welcomes your comment on an environmental assessment (EA) to amend the 1991 BLM San Luis Resource Management Plan (RMP) for geothermal energy leasing on BLM-managed lands. The Colorado Geological Survey recognizes the potential for geothermal energy in the San Luis Valley. Currently, there are no geothermal energy leases on BLM lands in the Valley.

Public comment on this EA opens March 12, 2012 and closes April 10, 2012. BLM is also hosting two open house meetings: Tuesday, March 20th from 4 – 7 p.m at the Saguache County Road and Bridge Building and Wednesday, March 21st from 4 – 7 p.m. at Adams State College (McDaniel Hall)

Thanks to the the Associated Press via The Denver Post for heads up.
