Project Description
Colusa Wind, LLC is requesting a right-of-way grant from the BLM to build a Type III wind energy project and erect up to 42 wind turbines on approximately 2,270 acres of BLM-managed public land along Walker Ridge, within the Indian Valley Management Area, in northern California. The proponent is also requesting to widen Walker Ridge Road, construct a substation, and bury a collection line and tie-in to the existing Pacific Gas and Electric transmission line. 
The BLM intends to prepare an environmental impact statement and a potential amendment to the 2006 Ukiah Resource Management Plan. The 2006 Ukiah Resource Management Plan identified the Indian Valley Management Area as suitable for wind development. 

Some of the issues that will be analyzed through this effort include air and atmospheric values, water quality and quantity, special status species, geology and soils, cultural resources, noise, recreation, visual resources, transportation and travel management, socioeconomics and wildland fire ecology.
