ADEQ has received a work plan for remedial actions to be conducted at the ASARCO January Adit (Norton Mine) VRP Site (VRP Site Code 505143-02). 

The Work Plan was submitted in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes §§ 49-175 and 176.  The Work Plan will address mine influenced water discharges from the January Mine Adit and seepage from historic tailing piles at the Trench Camp, Norton, and January Mine properties. This will be achieved through the construction of an active water treatment plant to treat discharges from the January Mine workings and solutions captured in the underdrain collection pond from the historic tailings and waste rock.
