Lucerne Valley Solar Project Draft EIS Released

BLM Announces Availability of the Lucerne Valley Solar Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement and Draft Plan Amendment for Public Review

A Bureau of Land Management (BLM) notice, published in today’s Federal Register, announces the availability of a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) and draft plan amendment for the proposed Chevron Energy Solution’s Lucerne Valley Solar Project in San Bernardino County.

Publication of the “Notice of Availability” initiates a 90-day public comment period, which ends May 13, 2010. A public comment meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 9, 2010 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Lucerne Valley Elementary School, 10788 Barstow Road, Lucerne Valley, Calif.

Chevron Energy Solutions applied to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a right-of-way on public lands to construct a solar photovoltaic power plant facility to be constructed on an approximate 516-acre site in San Bernardino County, Calif., approximately eight miles east of Lucerne Valley.  The project is expected to generate 45 megawatts of electricity, enough power for about 45,000 people.

The draft EIS also includes a proposed amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan.  It analyzes the site-specific impacts on air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, water resources, geological resources and hazards, hazardous materials handling, land use, noise, and visual resources and transmission system engineering and transmission line safety.

Further details can be found at the BLM web page: http://www.ca.blm.gov/barstow.  For information contact Greg Thomsen at 951-697-5237, or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
