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 clean-up is being conducted according to and in compliance with all local, state and federal laws. The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection has primary oversight responsibility with Clark County and several agencies also involved.
The clean-up effort is voluntary and funded entirely by private dollars. No public funds have or will be used in the entire process.
