Lahontan GeoScience located, removed pumps, and abandoned over 70 water wells for the US Navy at the Electronic Warfare Range in Dixie Valley, Nevada. These wells ranged from illegally-constructed shallow domestic wells to 16-inch diameter, 400-foot-deep irrigation wells with turbine pumps. Many of these wells were flowing uncontrolled to the surface due to casing breaks or failure of well seals. Often these flowing wells had created marshes that had to be drained before heavy equipment could be moved in to plug and abandon the wells. The well abandonment process involves removing all obstructions from the well casing, ripping the casing from the top of the well screen to the surface seal and pumping in cement to permanently seal the well. Some wells at this location were able to be repaired so the Navy could use them in the future.
