Status:  Completed. 

Latitude/Longitude (Datum NAD-83):  
  36 42' 15.712"  North
116 25' 06.581"  West

Legal Description:   
Township 14S Range 49E  Section 26 SE 1/4 NE 1/4

Elevation (Datum NGDV-29): 
868.64m AMSL (2850.15 ft +/-) GPS

Access: 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 1.9 miles.  Turn left (west) around a sump (oasis) and continue west on the new road that was built as access to NC-EWDP-22S.

Purpose:  NC-EWDP-22PA is a dual completion piezometer well.  Primary technical objectives include: 1) define valley-fill stratigraphic sequence and groundwater flow paths down-gradient of the proposed repository; and 2) provide water level and water chemistry data of alluvium and underlying Tertiary deposits; and 3) support the characterization of transport parameters. 

NC-EWDP-22PA 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-22S will permit this well to be used as an injection well during Nye County cross-hole tracer testing at this location in the future.
