    Water levels in the Yucca Mountain area, Nevada, Open-File Report By: Robert P. Graves, Patrick Tucci, and Robert L. Goemaat.   PART 63—DISPOSAL OF HIGH-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTES IN A GEOLOGIC REPOSITORY AT YUCCA MOUNTAIN, NEVADA. Part Index. Subpart A—General Provisions. Sec. Purpose and scope. Definitions. License required. Communications and records. Interpretations. Exemptions. License not required for certain preliminary.

    Fifteen wells in the Yucca Mountain area of southern Nevada have been sampled for chemical analysis. Samples were obtained by pumping water from the entire well bore (composite sample), and, in three instances, by pumping from one or more isolated intervals within a well bore. Sodium is the most abundant cation, and biocarbonate is the most abundant anion in all water samples. The U.S. Geological Survey, in support of the U.S. Department of Energy, Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project, collects, compiles, and summarizes hydrologic data in the Yucca Mountain region. The data are collected to allow assessments of ground-water resources during studies to determine the potential suitability of Yucca Mountain for storing high-level nuclear waste. Data on Author: C.G. Groat.

    The configuration of the southward-sloping water table under Yucca Mountain is dominated by an abrupt decline of m over a distance of less than 2 km. This northeast-striking zone of large hydraulic gradient (of or more) separates an area of moderate gradient (of about ) to the north from an area of very small gradient () to the south.
