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-22PB 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-22PB 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.
