City of Boise Geothermal Injection Well Project, June 1998 update

Basic Information
Author: Johnson, K.
Description:In 1998, the city of Boise signed a Cooperative Agreement with the Department of Energy which provides $870,000 for the construction of an injection well for the citys geothermal heating system. The goal of the project is to hydraulically replenish the geothermal aquifer the city shares with the Boise Warm Springs Water District, the Veterans Administration hospital, and the state of Idaho Capital Mall buildings, and to reduce the discharge of spent geothermal water to the Boise River. If the injection well is successful, the moratorium that limits the geothermal production for the citys system could be lifted and the city could expand the city-owned geothermal heating district.
