PUBLIC NOTICE | Proposed Termination of CAP for LUST Case No. 989.02

ADEQ is providing notice that a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) is being considered for termination.1 The CAP contained a proposal to demonstrate that proposed corrective actions would be protective of public health, welfare and the environment for the following site:

LUST Case File No.: 989.02 (Gasoline product piping/15 feet west of the northeast fuel dispenser)
Facility ID No.: 0-008153    
Facility address: Former Whiting Station No. 69/H&Z Investments Inc.
                                825 E. Monroe Ave.
                                Buckeye, AZ 85326

The decision to terminate the CAP is based on the following rationale:

1. Site classification documents indicated that there is the potential for:

  • Explosive vapor levels in buildings
  • Explosive vapor levels in subsurface conduits
  • Vapor levels causing acute health effects in building
  • Vapor levels causing acute health effects outdoors

2. From the provided groundwater analytical data provided in the case file, the approved remedial methods do not appear to be effective in reducing the contamination levels of several chemicals of concern at the site.

Since the approved remedial methods in the CAP do not demonstrate that these issues are being addressed and do not demonstrate the assured protection of public health and welfare and the environment in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes § 49-1005. Therefore the approved methods in the CAP are no longer applicable.
