PUBLIC NOTICE | Proposed Leaking UST Case Closure for Case File #5493.01, 5493.02

ADEQ is considering closure of the following leaking underground storage tank (LUST) case:

LUST Case File No.: 5493.01, 5493.02      

Facility ID No.: 0-008132
Yuma County

Facility address: 
Carquest #84
2500 E. 16th Street
Yuma, AZ 85365

Located at 2500 East 16th Street in Yuma, the site was used as a service station prior to 1968, but the UST owner/operator was never identified. The two USTs were closed in July 1970 and removed in 2006. The site has been occupied by various businesses, including auto part sales (Carquest), and most recently operated as Wild West Motor Sports, which sold and repaired motor sport vehicles. The property was sold in August 2014 to the current owner, 2500 HIGHWAY 95 LLC. Currently the site is vacant and up for sale/lease.

Soil samples collected during the UST permanent closure indicated trimethylbenzene contamination present over applicable regulatory standards at 3 and 14 feet below ground surface. Proposed site characterization activities included the installation of soil borings and monitoring wells by the property owner and its contractor NEI Environmental, under the State Assurance Fund. No work was conducted. In 2009, the property owner was not interested in pursuing corrective actions as an SAF volunteer. In August 2011, the property owner at that time requested assistance from ADEQ’s Sate Lead Unit (SLU) and was accepted into the SLU program. Upon the sale of the property in 2014, SLU contacted the current property owner, and they have continued ADEQ SLU involvement in the site.
