Township 15S Range 50E
Section 8 NW 1/4 NE 1/4 1/4
839.06 meters AMSL (2,752.79 feet) GPS
Access: Take Highway 95 north to the Nevada
Test Site (NTS) Gate
510 access road; turn north. Go north about 1.8 miles to the gravel powerline road
just south of the NTS boundary; turn east and go 1.4 miles.
Purpose: 1) provide lithologic samples; 2) define the stratigraphic
sequence and groundwater flow paths down-gradient of the proposed repository; and 3)
provide water level and water chemistry data.
NC-EWDP-5SB is located adjacent to an existing powerline
road immediately south of the NTS boundary. The site was selected for a
shallow (500 feet) well to help define the hydraulic gradient between the Lathrop Wells
area and Rock Valley. This well was drilled as a replacement for one of the
piezometers in NC-EWDP-5S that had become inoperative.
