Access:  There are several access routes possible to NC-GWE-PV-5.  The one shown is from the intersection of Nevada Highway 372 and Red Rock Drive heading south on Red Rock Drive about 1.7 miles.  Turn left onto W. Calvada Blvd and proceed east about 0.6 miles.  Take the second right onto Platense Street and drive south about 0.4 miles.  The well NC-GWE-PV-5 will be on the right side of the road.  Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view.

- Groundwater Conditions in Pahrump Valley:  
NC-GWE-PV-5 is one of five boreholes and wells that were drilled to infill data gaps in the Water Level Monitoring Program (WLMP), especially on the Pahrump Fan.
