If you own a private well, live in or near the site boundaries, and have not had your well tested, please contact ADEQ.

Contaminants of concern: Tetrachloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), thallium, arsenic

Action taken: From 2001 to 2004, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) discovered soil, soil gas and groundwater contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and heavy metal(s) near the northwest corner of Lake Havasu Avenue and Bahama Avenue.

From 2019 to 2020, ADEQ conducted a Preliminary Investigation (PI) near that location which confirmed the presence of PCE, TCE and thallium in the groundwater above their respective Arizona Aquifer Water Quality Standards (AWQS). The maximum concentration of PCE detected was 5.82 micrograms per liter (µg/L), TCE was 2,650 µg/L and thallium was 5.08 µg/L. Soil sampling indicated the presence of arsenic above Arizona Soil Remediation Levels (SRLs), with a maximum concentration detected at 17.2 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg). Based upon this data, the site was recommended for listing on the WQARF Site Registry.

Status: Remedial Investigation activities are being conducted at the site.
