dc.descriptionThe Hyder area consists of the Palomas Plain, Hyder Valley, and the northern portion of the Sentinel Plain, Part of the area is in western Maricopa County and the remainder is in Yuma County (Figure I-1). The Gila River crosses the south-central portion of the area in an east to west direction on its way to the Colorado River. Highway 80 parallels the river to connect the agriculture communities of Gila Bend and Yuma. Highway 80 is also the major route to southern California. Secondary dirt roads provide access to the numerous farms in the southern portion of the Palomas Plain and Hyder Valley. A review of existing geological, hydrological and temperature data from the Dateland-Hyder area was undertaken. This was judged to be the first step in assessing the area's geothermal potential. Additional information was gathered from firsthand field observations and discussions with the local population. Temperature measurements and chemical geothermometry suggest three areas where 40 degrees C to 100 degrees C waters may be found at depths of 500 to 1,000 meters. Projection of thermal gradients indicate 200 degrees C temperatures may be encountered at depths as shallow as 2,000 meters. Such a projection assumes continuation of the most favorable thermal gradients. Additional site specific work will be required to delineate these more favorable areas. (33 pages)
