Summary
Abstract: More than 1,200 water-level measurements from 1957 to 2005 in the Rainier Mesa
area of the Nevada Test Site were quality assured and analyzed. Water levels
were measured from 50 discrete intervals within 18 boreholes and from 4 tunnel
sites. An interpretive database was constructed that describes water-level
conditions for each water level measured in the Rainier Mesa area. Multiple
attributes were assigned to each water-level measurement in the database to
describe the hydrologic conditions at the time of measurement. General quality,
temporal variability, regional significance, and hydrologic conditions are
attributed for each water-level measurement. The database also includes
hydrograph narratives that describe the water-level history of each well.
