PUBLIC NOTICE | Proposed Type IV Amendment to Apache Junction Landfill

ADEQ has received an application from the Apache Junction Landfill Corporation (AJLC) for a Type IV amendment to the solid waste facility plan for the Apache Junction Landfill in Apache Junction, Ariz.


The Type IV amendment proposes two significant modifications to the existing solid waste facility plan approval: a vertical height increase from the currently approved height of 1685 feet above mean sea level to 1720 feet above mean sea level and the implementation of a new groundwater sampling and monitoring program. This height increase corresponds to an increase in permitted airspace volume by 2,754,600 cubic yards, bringing the total permitted airspace volume to 16,932,195 cubic yards. No change in the horizontal boundaries (landfill footprint) is requested. Three groundwater monitoring wells have been installed at the site and a baseline and routine groundwater monitoring plan has been proposed. A final site closure date of December 31, 2035, has been set by agreement between the City of Apache Junction and AJLC.
