Purpose:  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.
