Bedrock Regional Aquifer Systematics Study

NEW JERSEY

Naval Air Warfare Center.  William Burton and Joseph Smoot (BRASS) are working in cooperation with Pierre Lacombe of the USGS New Jersey District and the USGS Toxic Substances Hydrology Program to characterize the geologic framework of the former Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC) in West Trenton, NJ., which is the new fractured-rock hydrology research site for the Toxic Substances Hydrology Program.  BRASS will be conducting bedrock coring and geologic mapping around the site in order to understand the three-dimensional distribution of fractures, faults, and lithologic contacts, all potential pathways for contaminants issuing from this Superfund site.
