    ESIA Addendum Report

    This ESIA Addendum, prepared by Environmental Resources Management (ERM), reviews and combines the existing two ESIAs, provides punctual updates of gaps identified in the existing ESIAs and mitigation/ management plans, assesses the impacts of any additional Project modifications which have occurred recently (described in Section 3 of this document), and provides mitigation and management of those additional impacts (such as for the addition of a back-up production pad and well).

    ESIA REPORT: Reinjection Well & Pipeline

    This component of the project involves the construction and operation of the well pad, the drilling of a geothermal reinjection well, and the construction and operation of a reinjection pipeline and road access. The ESIA addressed the impacts of these components on the social, economic and environmental aspects of the community of Laudat. The proposed length of the pipeline is approximately 1.2 kilometres. It is located on the south-western periphery of the village of Laudat. The pipeline will follow the same route as the pipe from the hydro-balancing tank for the hydropower plant and then diverting from the route to the reinjection well pad.
