Abstract: During 1984 through 1987 eruptive activity at Steamboat Springs, Nevada, was observed in as many as twenty-one springs, despite repeated reports of the area's demise. This number of geysers means that Steamboat was the fourth or fifth largest geyser area in the world. Height of observed activity ranged from heavy overflow to approximately 15 meters. In 1987 a nearby geothermal powerplant, in conjunction with a regional drought, caused the end of all geyser activity to date.
