Status:  Completed. 

Latitude/Longitude (Datum NAD-83):   
  36o 44' 02.072" North
116o 29' 51.436" West

Legal Description:   
Township 14S, Range 49E, Section 18, NW 1/4 SE 1/4

Elevation (Datum NGVD-29): 
906.36 meters AMSL (2,973.63 feet) GPS

Access:  This well is located in a small unnamed valley approximately 8 miles south of the proposed Yucca Mountain repository and approximately 3 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 4 miles on the access road that runs N-S just east of the cinder cone.  At the intersection of Stage Coach Road go west for approximately 0.5 miles and then turn south on the new road for approximately 0.5 miles to the well site.

Purpose: NC-EWDP-27P was designed to serve as a hydrogeologic exploration borehole to approximately 2,000 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 2,000 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.
