provide water level and water chemistry data.
NC-EWDP-4PA is located adjacent to an existing paved access
road immediately south of the Nevada Test Site boundary. The site was selected to
test the aquifer above a thick clay zone that is present in the area. The borehole
was drilled and logged to a total depth of 499.7 feet.
