Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) §49-287.01 (E), ADEQ is providing the annual report of the location, remedial status and score of sites on the Water Quality Assurance Revolving Fund Registry as of Sept. 1, 2016. The Registry includes sites within the state that may pose a risk to public health, welfare or the environment from the release of hazardous substances and for which there is current or planned investigation and cleanup. There are 35 sites on the Registry:

  • 22 in Maricopa County
  • 7 in Pima County
  • 2 in Gila County
  • 1 in Graham County
  • 1 in Navajo County
  • 1 in La Paz County
  • 1 in Yuma County

Registry sites are scored based in part upon the type of contamination present, the location of the contamination and the number of people that may be affected. The maximum score a site may receive is 120. Scores are used to help determine relative risk from the site and do not necessarily mean that there is direct exposure of contaminants to the public or the environment. Whether the site is currently being remediated or investigated, ADEQ takes steps to identify the contamination and prevent exposure.

The Registry was published on Feb. 3, 2017. Additional information regarding these sites is available on the Arizona Secretary of State website | View >
