Another Comment sheet HERE.


 The DOE contractor has presented information to the Otero County Commission on two occasions. (My Comments to the Otero County Commissioners - HERE!). The Commission failed to endorsed this project either time.


The same project was proposed for rural North Dakota and rejected, see HERE


North Dakota placed a “moratorium” on the project, see HERE


February 2017; In Quay County, New Mexico the County Commissioners believe that DOE Borehole contractors were (I quote) “deceptive” and "The commission felt that the resolution needed to be rescinded because the information provided about the residents' support was inaccurate and misrepresented.”

Quay County withdrew its support of the Borehole Project.

Otero County County Commission Meeting March 9, 2017 Comments by Walt Coffman (notes). These comments were a “stakeholder update” and highlighted concerns surrounding DOE and TerranearPMC.
