Approximately 400 acres of the 2,200 acres on the property require remediation and clean-up. There has never been any industrial activity on the remainder of the site, most of which has remained virgin desert. The evaporation ponds are now inactive. The soil underlying the ponds will be excavated and transported to a lined and monitored Corrective Action Management Unit(CAMU), off site. No excavated soils will be disposed of on-site.
A geographic information system is a system for management, analysis, and display of geographic knowledge, which is represented through maps.
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.
A monitoring well is used to obtain water quality samples and measure groundwater levels.
The site's soil will be analyzed before and after the remediation. Each home site will be retested again before any residential construction begins.
