The National Park Service is proposing to designate the geothermal features inside Valles Caldera National Preserve as "significant thermal features" under the Geothermal Steam Act. This could help our efforts to ensure the surrounding Santa Fe National Forest is not impacted by possible geothermal leasing and development by requiring consideration of nearby listed significant features before leasing can occur. New Mexico Wilderness Alliance submitted comments in support of this proposal and you can too. Follow the link to see the proposal summary and comment through the Park Service website.
