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.
