The Santa Fe National Forest is considering a Forest Plan Amendment which would consider making over 194,000 acres available to devastating drilling programs for geothermal production immediately to the north and west of Valles Caldera National Preserve.
The area being considered for leasing includes portions of nine Inventoried Roadless Areas and countless water sources, including all the springs visited and loved in the Jemez Ranger District.
Inventoried Roadless Areas are places the Forest Service has determined contained wilderness characteristics, but which have not yet been permanently protected as wilderness by Congress.
