Waste Division

ADEQ placed the Highway 260 and Main Street site on the WQARF registry as of December 16, 2016, pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S.) §289.01 and will be performing a remedial investigation and feasibility study and has provided notice as per A.R.S. §289.02.


The Highway 260 and Main Street site in Cottonwood is bounded by Mingus Avenue to the north, Mongini Lane to the south, Verde River to the east, and South 15th Street, South Main Street and Highway to 260 to the west. The boundaries described are intended to provide the public with the basic information regarding the estimated geographic extent of the currently known contamination. The actual extent of the contamination may differ; therefore the geographic boundaries may change as new information becomes available.

The site score is 40 out of 120. The site score is based upon a review of available information regarding the presence of hazardous substances at the site. The scoring of a site, its relative score, or its placement on the registry does not necessarily represent a determination that the release of a hazardous substance from the site poses a threat to human health or welfare or the environment. The contaminant of concern is tetrachloroethene.
