) provide lithologic samples; 2) define the valley-fill
stratigraphic sequence; and 3) determine depth, nature and characteristics
of the carbonate aquifer.
NC-EWDP-2DB is located along a key groundwater pathway
between Yucca Mountain and the Amargosa Desert. This site was selected to define the
number and types of aquifers present in the Fortymile Wash Area down-gradient of Yucca
Mountain. The well NC-EWDP-2D had been drilled to 1,618 feet in fiscal year 1999 and
NC-EWDP-2DB was drilled at the same site to explore the Paleozoic Carbonate Aquifer in
fiscal year 2000.
