  • Organizers of the art and cultural festival Burning Man and several environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over the agency’s approval of a geothermal exploration project in northwestern Nevada.
  • The suit, filed in Nevada federal court on Monday, alleged that the BLM violated the National Environmental Policy Act and other laws in 2022 when it failed to adequately assess the environmental impacts of an exploration plan by the developer Ormat.
  • The suit alleged that the agency conducted a limited environmental review that only took into account the project’s impacts on Gerlach, a gateway town to the festival that attracts 70,000 people each year.
