Carlsbad Brine Well Update on the Remediation Project for the week ending February 10,  2020

Twelve of the sixteen anticipated grouting/sand injection wells have been completed and work continues.  Grouting is complete in four wells in the southern portion.  Sand backfilling is ongoing in three wells in the north.   The southern part of the site has been successfully stabilized through the injected grout process in part due to the southern cavity not being as extensive as expected.  Drilling and sonar readings in the northern portion of the site indicates the cavity in this area is larger than previously understood.  A series of sonar surveys to determine the size and shape of this cavity have been completed and data will be available soon.

The EMNRD Carlsbad Brine Well project page has been updated for better navigation and more up-to-date information on the project.
