This well is located on the Nevada Test Site
(NTS) and requires U.S. Department of Energy permission for access.
Enter the NTS through Gate 510 and proceed 2.7 miles north on Lathrop
Wells Road. Turn left (west) past a sump (0.8 miles), continue
through the intersection another 1.7 miles to the site.
NC-EWDP-10S is a multiple screen monitoring well. Primary technical
objectives include: 1) drill and complete the well in the alluvial and upper Tertiary aquifer;
2) identify lithostratigraphic contacts, potential production zones, and
structural features; 3) identify coarse grained intervals that may
serve as preferred flow paths; 4) screen and develop multiple zones of
interest and obtain aquifer property data; 5) obtain long-term pressure
and temperature data and water quality (chemistry) data; and 6) support
the characterization of transport parameters in the alluvium and
underlying Tertiary deposits.
NC-EWDP-10S is located adjacent to the present day channel in Fortymile
Wash and along a potential alluvial flow path from Yucca Mountain to
populated areas in Amargosa Valley. The close proximity to
NC-EWDP-10P (~20 meters) will permit this well to be used as the pump well
during Nye County cross-hole tracer testing at this location in the
