Action Taken

On May 16, 1983, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted a public meeting located in Globe, Gila County, Arizona to present the feasibility study (FS) report, answer questions, and take public comment. Approximately 125-140 people were in attendance. Written comments received on the remedial investigation (RI) and FS supported permanent relocation as the only way to effectively mitigate the human threat. In 2010, community input was solicited as part of the 2010 five year review (FYR) report.

Status

Annual inspections and inspections following inclement weather continue to be conducted along with regular mowing, brush removal, and routine maintenance. EPA has finalized an Explanation of Significance Difference (ESD) to the Record of Decision (ROD) making the institutional controls imposed be ADEQ’s Declaration of Environmental Use Restriction (DEUR) part of the final remedy for the Site. A Five Year Review conducted in early 2015 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, EPA, and ADEQ determined that the site remedy continues to be protective of human health and the environment.
