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 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-22S 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-22PA and -22PB will permit this well to be used as the pump well during Nye
County cross-hole tracer testing at this location in the future.
