Latitude/Longitude (Datum NAD-83):    
36o 40' 11.107" North
116o 22' 37.000" West

Legal Description:   
Township 15S Range 50E    
Section 8 NW 1/4 NE 1/4 1/4

Elevation (Datum NGVD-29): 
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.
