Santa Rosa Reclaimed Water Geysers Recharge Project (GRP), California

Geothermal Program Fact Sheets. This project will provide enhanced geothermal energy production and extend the life of the northwest portion of The Geysers steam field. Over the last 15 years declining steam pressure at The Geysers has reduced electricity capacity from a high of 1,600 MW to 850 MW today. This project will transport 11 million gallons of tertiary-treated reclaimed water from the City of Santa Rosa to the northwestern part of The Geysers steam-field where it will be injected in the geothermal reservoir. This project will extend the life of The Geysers steamfield and increase electricity production by about 85 MW. The project also will provide research opportunities with potential to benefit the entire geothermal industry and royalties on state and federal leases due to increased steam production. Commission funds will be used to purchase pipe and materials as part the construction of a 34-mile pipeline and associated facilities. This resource is available online as a downloadable file.
