Who is responsible for the monitoring and clean up?

Maricopa County is the owner of the property and is responsible for monitoring and remediating the groundwater contamination, as necessary. This will be done in conjunction with guidance and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). The Town of Queen Creek is not responsible for the project but is an important stakeholder and will be consulted in each step of the remediation.
