Status:  Completed

Latitude/Longitude (Datum NAD-83):
  36 38' 21.544" North  
116 29' 03.381" West
Legal Description:
Township 15S Range 49E
Section 20 NE 1/4 NW 1/4

Ground Elevation (Datum NGDV-29): 
775.82 meters AMSL (2545.34 feet)

Access: From the intersection of Highway 95 and Highway 373 head west on Highway 95 about 6 miles to the highway gate on the south side of the road.  Travel 2.2 miles south on dirt road along powerline.  When you come to a T in the road, turn east.  The well is located 1 mile down the road.

Purpose: The NC-EWDP-32P borehole was designed to serve as a hydrogeologic exploration borehole to approximately 1,000 feet below ground surface.  The well was designed to serve as a triple-string piezometer well with three screens completed from 239 to 278 feet, 464 to 483 feet, and 698 to 737 feet.  The borehole was completed to 1,000 feet after meeting geologic objectives.  Primary technical objectives include: 1) collect and geologically log continuous drill cutting samples and run borehole geophysical logs to approximately 1,000 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.
