Has contamination been confirmed at the Queen Creek Landfill?

Yes. Routine monitoring that the County conducts on all of its closed landfills showed a low level of contamination in the groundwater and was confirmed by a follow up test. The levels detected were under 10 parts per billion which is very low, however, still exceeds the action level of 0.005 mg/L (5 parts per billion).
