MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – Calpine Corp. will hold an informational presentation and discussion for the community this month regarding its application for a time extension of its Davies Estate Geothermal Well Development.
The meeting will take place beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the Calpine Geothermal Visitor Center, 15500 Central Park Road, Middletown.
Calpine filed an application for a time extension for this permit with the Lake County Community Development Department on Sept. 20.
The use permit, UP 83-36, covers several existing wells on an existing well pad in the steamfield area, which is located about three-quarters of a mile south of Anderson Springs at 20055 Foard Road.
The Lake County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the Calpine’s application, UPX 12-01, at 9:25 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 13.
The public hearing will be held in the Board of Supervisors’ chambers on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St. Anyone interested may attend and offer input on the application.
Calpine said it is offering several opportunities to visit this well site.
