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 LandWell Restoration Project will be one of the largest mixed-use master planned communities in Southern Nevada.
The site's soil will be analyzed before and after the remediation. Each home site will be retested again before any residential construction begins.
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.
A monitoring well is used to obtain water quality samples and measure groundwater levels.
