Background

The 10-square-mile Tucson International Airport Area site is located in and next to Tucson, Arizona. The site includes the Tucson International Airport, portions of the Tohono O'Odham Indian Reservation (San Xavier District), residential areas of Tucson and South Tucson, and the Air Force Plant #44 Raytheon Missile Systems Company (AFP44). Former aircraft and electronics manufacturing activities, fire drill training activities, and unlined landfills contaminated groundwater and soil. Cleanup, operation and maintenance activities, and monitoring are ongoing.
