A monitoring well is used to obtain water quality samples and measure groundwater levels.
Familiar with Black Mountain Industrial Center and Valley Auto Mall? The developer of these popular spots in Henderson is the same for the 2,200-acre project – The LandWell Company -- known for quality, conservation and developments that complement the community.
The LandWell Restoration Project will be one of the largest mixed-use master planned communities in Southern Nevada.
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.
The lead scientist in charge of the clean-up effort – Dr. Ranajit Sahu – is a certified environmental manager (CEM) in the state of Nevada, a quality environmental planner as defined by the Institute of Professional Environmental Practice (IPEP), and has been an adjunct professor at UCLA and USC.
