Notice Read the Following: Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is proposing to list the Highway 260 and Johnson Lane site in Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona, on the ADEQ Water Quality Assurance Revolving Fund (WQARF) site registry pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute §49-287.01.

The Highway 260 and Johnson Lane site is bounded to the north by the Rhoton Lane alignment, to the east by the western side of the Blue Ridge Unified School District property and Billy Creek, to the south by the east-west alignment of West White Mountain Boulevard (State Route Highway 260) and the Burke Lane alignment, and to the west by Rainbow View Drive. The boundaries described are intended to provide the public with the basic information regarding the estimated geographic extent of contamination given current available data. Based on results of further investigations and monitoring, the actual extent of contamination may differ. As such, the geographic boundaries may change as new information becomes available. The contaminants known to be present are tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene.

The site score is 40 out of 120. The site score is based upon a review of available information regarding the presence of hazardous substances at the site. The scoring of a site, its relative score, or its placement on the registry does not necessarily represent a determination that the release of a hazardous substance from the site poses a threat to human health or welfare or the environment.
