EA-1759: Final Environmental Assessment

Southwest Alaska Regional Geothermal Energy Project

The purpose of this report is to identify and describe wetlands at a location approximately 5 miles northeast of King Salmon, Alaska. The general location of the site is in southwestern Alaska, near the northeastern end of Bristol Bay on the north side of the Naknek River, between King Salmon and Naknek Lake. Approximately 154 acres of Naknek Electrical Association (NEA) property is proposed for geothermal exploration. The site includes a proposed 100-foot-wide road corridor beginning at approximately 3 miles west along an unimproved road from Naknek II Recreation Camp (also known as Lake Camp) on Naknek Lake. The road corridor extends north and northeast approximately to the NEA property. Both the NEA property and the proposed road corridor are within the following land survey sections: Sections 14, 26, and 23 of Township 17S, Range 44W, Seward Meridian.
