The Medicine Lake Highlands in Northern California, sacred to five distinct Indigenous nations, continues to be threatened by Calpine Energy Corporation’s destructive plans for geothermal power development.
In March of 2015, a 9th Circuit Court ruling affirmed the right of the Pit River Tribe and allies to challenge geothermal power production leases issued by the Bureau of Land Management. On April 19, Judge Mendez will hear the suit brought by the Tribe and allies for violations of the Geothermal Steam Act and failure to conduct environmental, cultural, and tribal reviews before renewing Calpine Corporation’s expired leases.
