This addendum to the 2005 work plan identifies how additional assessment of groundwater features and contamination at Cave Creek Landfill will be conducted.
This document has been prepared to fulfill the requirements for a hydraulic study for the Cave Creek Landfill operated by Maricopa County.
During the period of 1965 through 1984, Maricopa County operated a landfill leased from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. In 1982 the County leased a separate parcel from the State for the development of a new landfill. The landfill stopped accepting waste in 1998.
To evaluate whether VOCs are migrating out of the landfills into the vadose zone, a soil vapor survey of the soil beneath the landfill bases was performed. Permanent vapor monitoring probes were installed and then sampled twice for VOCs. Groundwater beneath the landfills has been impactd by VOCs, namely TCE, DCE, and toluene.
This Additional Site Characterization Work Plan presents a strategy for collecting site characterization information at the closed Maricopa County Cave Creek Landfill to support ongoing remedial action planning for trichloroethene-impacted groundwater underlying the site. The Work Plan supplements previous remedial investigation work plans prepared to characterize the nature and extent of site contamination.
The Arizona Department of Transportation, the Arizona Game & Fish Department and the Arizona State Parks Board are required to conduct a study every three years on watercraft fuel consumption and recreational watercraft usage. The fuel consumption data is collected to determine the allocation of motor vehicle fuel tax to the State Lake Improvement Fund. The information on recreational watercraft usage patterns on Arizona’s lakes and rivers is necessary, in part, to determine the distribution of SLIF funds to applicants.
