Abstract

The report contains a table of ground-water level data and two preliminary potentiometric-surface maps for the Yucca Mountain area. The water-level surface shown on the maps generally represents water-table (unconfined) conditions. The water table in the Yucca Mountain area occurs in ash-flow and air-fall tuffs of tertiary age. West of the crest of Yucca Mountain, water-level altitudes are about 775 meters above sea level. Along the eastern edge and southern end of Yucca Mountain, the potentiometic surface generally is nearly flat, is about 728 to 730 meters above sea level, and has a southeastward slope. (USGS)
