DBFT Scientific Drilling Project
Nara Visa, NM

Due to shifting funding priorities, the Department of Energy has decided to defund the Deep Borehole Field Test Project, citing recent funding requests to pursue Yucca Mountain and other Interim Storage options. 

The Deep Borehole Field Test (DBFT) Scientific Drilling Project team consists of geoscientists working together to build a deeper understanding of deep-earth geology.  Their scientific research will provide the knowledge we need to find safe, sustainable answers to problems that face our society.
