The Litchfield Airport site, also known as the Phoenix-Goodyear Airport Area site, covers approximately 35 square miles and, except for the airport, is almost entirely in the city of Goodyear. The surrounding area is primarily agricultural, however, residential development is anticipated in the near future. A ground water divide running under the area effectively divides the site into a northern and southern area. Between 1981 and 1983, the State discovered that the ground water was contaminated with solvents, metals, and VOCs. A 1987 Record of Decision (ROD) addressed ground water in an area of the southern portion of the site contaminated with VOCs. The ROD addresses soil (vadose zone) and ground water remediation for the remainder of the site, with the exception of chromium-contaminated soil in the sludge drying beds at the former GAC facility. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
