Summary:Hydrologic testing was conducted in 1980 and 1981 at wells at hydrologic test pads H-7, H-8, H-9, and H-10 near the proposed Waste Isolation Pilot Plant site in southeastern New Mexico. Tests were conducted in three zones above the horizon of the proposed underground storage facility. The zones are the Magenta Dolomite Member of the Rustler Formation, the Culebra Dolomite Member of the Rustler Formation, and the Rustler Formation-Salado Formation contact zone. Data presented are from bailing tests, density profiles, shut-in tests, slug tests, flow tests, pressure-pulse tests, and pumping tests. (USGS)
