CA: Geothermal plants find natural steam source running out : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

But mismanagement of the steam fields beneath
the hilly northwestern California region that
straddles the Sonoma and Lake county lines has
led to a large decline of pressure -- and a
drop of more than 50 percent in the amount of
power the plants produce.

The story says they have learned from their mistakes and are pumping water back in to create more steam. Sounds like tey will make it a sustainable resource.
