PART 1 of 3 - This video examines an interval from 111 ft - 120 ft below ground surface in Virginia State Observation Well 009 in PUlaski County as recorded by DEQ staff on 3/25/08. The video shows deformation in Cambrian age shale beds in the hanging wall of the Peak Creek fault system. The alternating reddish-brown and tan shales and siltstones of the Rome/Waynesboro formation have been micro-faulted and folded in places. At several intervals in this well (112 ft in this video), stringers and "dikes" of max-meadows tectonic breccia are visible having injected into fractures and bedding planes of the Rome formation that was riding on a hydrolized "slurry" of fault gouge as this major paleozoic thrust fault system displaced bedrock tens of miles. A large interval of the max meadows tectonic breccia is observed deeper in the well (Part 3). The former supply well is located 37.0483672797222 / -80.6286453333333 NAD83 and is currently a state observation well used for drought monitoring. http://www.deq.virginia.gov/gwcharact...
