Media Mentions: Recently in the News

November 11, 2015

Local media sources have printed a few stories about the Newberry area recently. Here’s a link to the Sunriver Scene, with an article on page 11. Local news channel KTVZ-21 and the Bend Bulletin have also posted stories related to the recent micro-seismic events taking place southwest of Newberry. While these micro-seismic events are naturally occurring and unrelated to EGS development at Newberry, we wanted to share these articles with you anyway. If you’re interested in learning more about seismicity in the Pacific Northwest, the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network offers a great interactive map of seismic activity in the area. Check it out!
