A geographic information system is a system for management, analysis, and display of geographic knowledge, which is represented through maps.
The Muddy Creek formation underlies the Qa. The Muddy Creek formation underlies much of the Las Vegas Valley and is more than 2,000 feet thick in places. The upper portion beneath the site is referred to as TMCf. The soil of the TMCf underlying the site is typically fine-grained (sandy silt and clay silt), although layers with increased sand content are also sporadically encountered.
The site's soil will be analyzed before and after the remediation. Each home site will be retested again before any residential construction begins.
The majority of the restoration work is removal of soil. After the soil is removed, more tests will be performed to ensure it meets the most stringent standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for residential development.
The new master planned community will feature 526 acres of parks and open space adjacent to the Las Vegas Wash, the River Mountain Loop Trails and the Henderson Birding Preserve offering residents a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities.
