The purpose of the NC-EWDP-9S 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; and 3) provide water level and water chemistry data.
NC-EWDP-9S was drilled to 77.7 feet and
core samples were logged. Drilling was stopped at NC-EWDP-9S due to
drilling difficulties and lack of recovery. Drilling operations were
moved to 9SX to complete the drilling objective at this general location.
