Access:  From Beatty (Main Street and S 2nd Street) take US Highway 95 north about 7.3 miles and turn right (about 0.4 miles north of Fleur De Lis Road).  Proceed about 0.3 miles east, and veer north for about another 0.5 mile. NC-GWE-OV-1 is located about 150 ft to the left of the road in the meadow.  It is on the other side of a barbed-wire fence with an unlocked gate.  Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view of the image map.

- Surface Water Conditions in Southern Nye County:  
NC-GWE-OV-1 is one of two boreholes and monitoring wells in Oasis Valley to collect baseline flow and chemical data in areas (far) down gradient from previous nuclear tests.
