Pre-Design Investigation SSS-4

Site-Wide Soils & Sediment
PDI SSS-4 Cooling Pond, Sphagnum Bog, and Landfill Excavation

PDI SSS-4 is designed to provide additional information on geophysical and slope stability of various features around the site. Included in these efforts are ground-penetrating radar scans of the northern parking lot and landfill, sediment collection and sampling in areas around the bog and cooling water ponds, analyses of groundwater and surface water interactions within the cooling water pond, and sampling of the interior of the sphagnum bog to characterize needs and methods for restoration.  The figures below show the proposed geophysical survey area and proposed exploration plan.
