    Groundwater recharge from the Spring Mountains on the east, and possibly the Nevada Test Site to the north, provide ~26, acre-ft/yr for use in the Pahrump area. During , ~30, acre-ft of water was extracted from the Pahrump aquifer, mostly in the concentrated area of the unicorporated town of Pahrump, that has an estimated population. Geology and Seismicity GEOLOGY AND SEISMICITY This section describes the regional and local geology in the study area and the susceptibility of site soils to seismically induced hazards. The study area includes the entire mile alignment from the planned Warm Springs BART Station to .
