Purpose: The purpose of the NC-EWDP-1D drillhole was to 1) provide lithologic samples of spring deposits; 2) define valley-fill stratigraphic sequence and groundwater flow paths down-gradient of proposed repository; 3) provide aquifer test data; and 4) provide water level and water chemistry data.

NC-EWDP-1D was drilled to 57.7 feet and core samples were logged. Drilling was stopped at NC-EWDP-1D and the drilling operations were moved to NC-EWDP-1DX to complete the drilling objectives at this general location.
