Contaminants of Concern (COCs):

  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs, including PCE, TCE, 1,1-DCE, cis 1,2-DCE, 1,1-DCA, toluene, benzene)

Affected Media:

  • Soil
  • Groundwater

What are My Health Risks: 

For Soil | There is little to no health risk unless there is contact with skin or ingestion of contaminated soil.

For Groundwater | If you are connected to a public water system (PWS) there is little to no risk of impact from exceedances because the water is filtered through the PWS for residential and business use. | View Drinking Water Notices > 

If you have a private well in the vicinity of the exceedance, we encourage you to test the well water.

Site Summary:  

Clean Harbors Arizona is a hazardous waste storage facility that has existed since the 1970s.  Sampling results show soil and groundwater are contaminated with VOCs.  A soil vapor extraction (SVE) system is being used to remove VOCs from the soil, and onsite wells are being sampled to monitor the effectiveness of the soil remediation.
