Access: Take Highway 95 north from the
Lathrop Wells Jct. 7.5 miles to the gate on the north side of the Highway. Take the
gravel road 0.15 miles north; turn east and follow the tire tracks.
Purpose: 1) provide lithologic samples of deposits; 2) define valley-fill
stratigraphic sequence and groundwater flow paths down-gradient of proposed repository;
and 3) provide water level and water chemistry data.
NC-EWDP-3D is located along a key groundwater pathway
between Crater Flat and the Amargosa Desert. Because of high water temperatures,
specialized Westbay equipment will be ordered and completion of this well has been delayed
until the equipment is available. Water samples were collected for analysis.
