The Phase I ESA revealed evidence of the following recognized environmental conditionsin connection with the subject property: � City directory searches revealed that a service station operated on the subject property during the 1950�s, 1960�s, and early 1970�s. Historically, such facilities typically dispensed fuel from a UST however, the environmental consultant was unable to obtain documentation on possible USTs located on and/or removed from the subject property. Additional assessment should be conducted in the reported area of the former service station to verify that USTs are not present at the site. In the event that USTs are discovered, soil and/or groundwater samples should be collected and analyzed for Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons, Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAHs, and Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs to identify potential impacts to soil and/or groundwater. The completion of this ESA will assist in future redevelopment of the site, primarily for commercial uses.
Former Use: The subject property is a vacant lot located on the northeast corner of 29th Street and 9th Avenue. The lot is covered in gravel and is enclosed by a chain link fence of the northern and eastern boundaries and there are railroad ties spaced along the western and southern boundaries. Historical record reviews indicate that the subject property was first developed between 1949 and 1951 and that a service station operated from two structures on the subject property during the 1950�s, 1960�s, and early 1970�s. Between 1973 and 1978, the service station discontinued operations on the property and a tire shop began to conduct operations from the facilities. The tire shop discontinued operations sometime prior to 1983 and the structures associated with these operations were demolished between 1978 and 1980. The subject property then became vacant and has yet to be redeveloped. The environmental consultant attempted to obtain documentation on possible underground storage tanks USTs located on and/or removed from the subject property by contacting the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality ADEQ and the Arizona State Fire Marshal�s Office ASFMO. ADEQ staff stated that there were no such records for the subject property.
