A Phase I ESA performed by Pima County on August 27, 2009 identified one recognized environmental condition REC in connection with the site. Approxiamtely 20 5-gallon and 1-gallon containers labeled as containing acetone, mineral spirits, lacquer, paint, coating, and other chemicals were observed to be stored on wooden pallets without secondary containment. The Phase I ESA dtermined that there was a potential for these chemcials to be discharged to the soil through leaks or spills. Two soil samples were collected from beneath the center of pallets where containers of chemicals used in cabinet fabrication were stored and analyzed for VOCs and SVOCs. No SVOCs were detected in the samples. One sample had detectable concentrations of the VOCs toluene and total xylenes however, these concentrations did not exceed the applicable State of Arizona Soil Remediation Levels SRLs. Therefore, no additional environmental investigation of these two areas is recommended. Redevelopmentis inthe conceptual Phase. Property was bought by Habitat for Humanity in October 2012.
