Water-level measurements have been made in deep boreholes in the Yucca Mountain area, Nye County, Nevada, since in support of the U.S. Department of Energy's Yucca Mountain Project, which is an evaluation of the area to determine its suitability as a potential storage area for high-level nuclear waste. Water-level measurements were taken either manually, using various water-level. Analysis of water-level data in the Yucca Mountain area, Nevada, Technical Report Graves, R P; Tucci, P; O`Brien, G M. From through , a water-level network that consists of 28 wells for monitoring 36 depth intervals has been maintained in the Yucca Mountain area. The network includes wells that were measured manually.

The revised potentiometric-surface map presented in this report updates earlier maps of the Yucca Mountain area using mainly average water levels. Because of refinements in the corrections to the water-level measurements, these water levels have increased accuracy and precision over older values. The small-gradient area to the southeast of Yucca Mountain is contoured with a meter. Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada, has been identified as a potential site for underground storage of high-level radioactive nuclear waste. Detailed bedrock geologic maps form an integral part of the site characterization program by providing the fundamental framework for research into the geologic hazards and hydrologic behavior of the mountain.

Drill hole J is located outside of this figure to the southeast and can be found on the location map published in Bish et al. (). 3. The panel will attempt to see whether there are plausible mechanisms, tectonic, thermal, or otherwise, by which the water level in the Yucca Mountain could rise to the level of the repository. We will attempt to look for evidence in the Yucca Mountain area as well as in neighboring parts of Nevada where data exist to see what previously has.

Water levels have been monitored hourly in 15 wells completed in 23 depth intervals in the Yucca Mountain area, Nevada. Water levels were monitored using pressure transducers and were recorded by data loggers. The pressure transducers were periodically calibrated by raising and lowering them in the wells.
