Conflict over tapping geothermal power at Makushin volcano

The City of Unalaska and the owners of the geothermal fluid near Makushin volcano have different ideas on the best way to push the geothermal energy project forward. The city thinks the best next move is to drill more test wells in Makushin Valley. The resource owners want to pursue a feasibility study that uses lasers to determine the strength of the resource in different locations.
