Title: Simulated effects of potential withdrawals from wells near Yucca Mountain, Nevada

Abstract

The effects of potential future withdrawals from wells J-12, J-13, and UE-25c {number_sign}3 on the ground-water flow system in the area surrounding Yucca Mountain, Nevada, were simulated by using an existing (1997) three-dimensional regional ground-water flow model. The 1997 regional model was modified only to include changes at the pumped wells. Two steady-state simulations (baseline and predictive) were conducted to estimate changes in water level and changes in ground-water outflow from Jackass Flats, where the pumped wells are located, south to the Amargosa Desert.
