Crescent Valley Town Center

Crescent Valley is an unincorporated town in northern Eureka County. A few miles to the north is the ghost town of Beowawe, formerly a railroad town but now the site of a major geothermal power plant and a massive propane tank farm near the railroad tracks. This area still sees some mining activity but quite a few of the folks are into agriculture. Crescent Valley is large enough to have its own elementary school but middle and high school students are bussed to Battle Mountain for schooling.

Researchers have been examining data retrieved from on-site GPS stations that indicate the amount of mining and the pumping of water for agricultural purposes in the whole of Crescent Valley are causing a relatively rapid vertical and horizontal deformation of the ground surface, mostly in terms of subsidence of the surface as materials are removed below ground.
