The Apache Powder Company site is located in Cochise County, Arizona. The site was the location of an industrial chemicals and explosives manufacturing facility beginning in 1922. More recently, agricultural and mining products manufacturing took place on site. These operations produced liquid and solid wastes that were disposed on the property, contaminating soils and groundwater at the site. Following construction of the site’s long-term remedy, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.
