Summary:Ecology and Environment, Inc. has been working on numerous Superfund sites in the western United States for the EPA, as a subcontractor to CH2M Hill. We are currently involved in an investigation at a Superfund site with ground-water contamination near Phoenix, Arizona. The site is unique among other Superfund sites by encompassing over 12 square miles and containing within its boundaries several parties potentially responsible for ground-water contamination. Furthermore, the site is in a regulated ground-water management area characterized by severe ground-water overdraft problems, due to extensive use of groundwater for drinking, irrigation, and industrial water supplies. Modified journal abstract.
