240751-1012/1/2021 Section 5_4_Geological Hazards and Resources_Gem Energy Storage Center
This section provides an evaluation of the proposed Advanced Compressed Air Energy Storage (A-CAES) facility at the Gem Energy Storage Center (GESC) in terms of potential exposure to geological hazards and potential to affect geologic resources of commercial, recreational, or scientific value. The information presented in the following sections is based on readily available information provided online and is limited to surficial soils only. Construction of the proposed GESC involves the construction of various surface facilities and features (i.e., buildings, air processing facility, compressors, turbines, etc.), the excavation of deep vertical shafts on the order of 2,000 feet deep below the existing ground surface, the excavation of an underground cavern, and the construction and filling of a hydrostatic compensation surface reservoir. A site-specific geotechnical exploration has not been performed at the proposed project location to characterize the site-specific surface and subsurface conditions.

This subsection summarizes the worker health and safety issues that may be encountered during the construction and operation of the proposed Gem Energy Storage Center (GESC or Gem). Because of the subject matter, this subsection follows a slightly different format than other subsections in Section 5. Instead of a standard discussion of affected environment followed by the project’s environmental consequences and proposed mitigation measures for significant impacts, this subsection contains worker safety information, including the laws, ordinances, regulations, and standards (LORS) that apply to the GESC. Section 5.16.1 contains a brief description of the work environment and setting. Section 5.16.2 describes the health and safety programs in terms of analyses conducted to identify hazards and also the safety compliance and training programs that will be established onsite. Section 5.16.3 discusses the applicable LORS. Section 5.16.4 lists the regulatory agencies involved and key agency contacts. Section 5.16.
