Newberry Kleinfelder Independent Hydrology Review Report
Water use and Newberry EGS Demonstraton: The Kleinfelder Report provides a full review of the water usage plans for the Newberry EGS Demonstration and concluded that any direct or indirect effects on the environment were extremely unlikely.
Kleinfelder, an industry leader in environmental consulting services, has completed an independent review of AltaRock’s water usage plans for the Newberry EGS Demonstration. They confirmed that the estimated water usage during the entire Demonstration represented less than 0.3% of the annual recharge to the Newberry aquifer.
The Kleinfelder study concluded that direct or indirect effects on the environment was extremely unlikely, and recommended additions to AltaRock’s proposed environmental monitoring program to ensure that public stakeholders could verify this throughout the 3-year project.
