Status:  Completed

Latitude/Longitude (Datum NAD-83):  
  36o 40' 57.297" North
116o 26' 52.884" West

Legal Description:  
Township 15S, Range 49E,
Section 3 NE 1/4 NW 1/4

Elevation (Datum NGVD-29):
830.41 meters AMSL (2,724.45 feet) GPS

Access:  From the intersection of Highway 95 and Highway 373, go west on Highway 95 about 0.2 miles to the intersection of Highway 95 and the Gate 510 road.  Go north 1.8 miles to Powerline Road, turn left (west) just south of the 510 gate, continue 2.5 miles along Powerline Road, turn right just east of the Alluvial Tracer Complex (ATC) and continue approximately 0.8 miles along the road to the well site.

Purpose: NC-EWDP-29P 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. The borehole was terminated at 790 feet due to difficult drilling conditions. Primary technical objectives include: 1) collect and geologically log continuous drill cutting samples and run borehole geophysical logs to approximately 790 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.
