PUBLIC NOTICE | Central and Camelback WQARF PRAP

ADEQ has completed the Proposed Remedial Action Plan (PRAP) for the Central and Camelback Water Quality Assurance Revolving Fund (WQARF) site in Phoenix, Ariz.1 The PRAP documents the results of the remedial investigation/feasibility study and identifies the proposed remedy and its estimated costs.


The Central and Camelback WQARF site consists of two plumes located in Phoenix. The plumes are bounded approximately by Georgia Avenue to the north, Mariposa Street to the south, Second Street to the east, and First Avenue to the west. Contaminants of concern at the site are tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene.

The proposed remedy for the site is as follows: continue operation of the groundwater remediation system, perform rebound testing of the soil vapor extraction (SVE) system and decommission when finished, abandon select groundwater monitor wells and SVE wells, and targeted enhanced in-situ bioremediation injections. The estimated cost to implement this remedy is approximately $5,144,000 for a period of 10 years with a contingency of an additional $3,996,000 for ten more years if groundwater contaminant concentrations do not achieve remedial objectives as calculated. Previous costs accrued by ADEQ total $5,288,742.64.
