A. Departmental Moratorium on Geothermal Leasing Outside Crater Lake National Park

Under the discretionary authority vested in the Department of the Interior by the Geothermal Steam Act of 1970, the Secretary imposed a moratorium on geothermal leasing on Federal lands surrounding Crater Lake National Park. This moratorium, in place since 1987, is hereby lifted with the submission of this report to the Congress and the Department will evaluate all proposals on a case-by-case basis. All lease applications received after this moratorium is lifted, will be treated according to the provisions of the Interagency Agreement (IA) for implementing the provisions of the Geothermal Steam Act Amendments of 1988. (See the discussion of the IA which follows.) We assure the Congress that the Department will protect the significant thermal features of Crater Lake National Park and accord them all the protective measures of the Geothermal Steam Act Amendments of 1988.
