This well is located in a small unnamed valley
approximately 7 miles south of the proposed Yucca Mountain repository and
approximately 4 miles north of the Lathrop Wells cinder cone. Turn
north off Hwy 95 at a point just south of the cinder cone where the
power-line crosses Hwy 95. Proceed approximately 3 miles on the
access road that runs N-S just east of the cinder cone. The well is
on the east side of the road.
NC-EWDP-16P was designed to serve as a hydrogeologic exploration borehole
to approximately 3,000 feet below ground surface and to serve as a
piezometer well with a single screen extending across the water table.
Primary technical objectives include: 1) collect and geologically log
continuous drill cutting samples and run borehole geophysical logs to
approximately 3,000 feet; 2) Use these data to define the stratigraphic
sequence and to better characterize geologic structural boundaries
immediately south of the proposed repository; and 3) provide water level
and water chemistry data from the uppermost aquifer.
