NDEP is an acronym for Nevada Division of Environmental Protection
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 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.
The site's soil will be analyzed before and after the remediation. Each home site will be retested again before any residential construction begins.
