This report presents the results of the Bureau of Economic Geology's investigation of the saturated-zone hydrology and hydrochemistry of Eagle Flat, Red Light Draw, and surrounding areas of southern Hudspeth County, Texas. Boundaries of the study area are the Rio Grande and Quitman Mountains to the south and west, the Van Horn and Carrizo Mountains to the east, and the Diablo Plateau to the north. Total land area is about 1,200 mi^2 (3,110 km^2). The Bureau of Economic Geology initiated this study in July 1991 at the request of the Texas Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Authority (TLLRWDA). The objective of the investigation was to ascertain whether northwest Eagle Flat may be considered a suitable location for disposal of low-level radioactive waste.
