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.
A monitoring well is used to obtain water quality samples and measure groundwater levels.
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 development will offer single family to apartments, condos and patio homes – offering a broad range of housing options and price ranges for the community.
Geophysics is a non-invasive method to investigate what is happening below the ground to improve the quality of knowledge of subsurface conditions at a site.
