PageTrowbridge radioactive/toxic waste landfill is located a few miles
to the east of Oracle Junction in Pinal County Arizona and contains radioactive
and toxic waste generated by the laboratories of the University of Arizona,
Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the Tucson Veterans
PageTrowbridge dump lies over an aquifer that is the sole water supply
for residents of this desert region.
dump is owned by the University of Arizona, and the UA is responsible for
monitoring the groundwater beneath the dump to determine if the dump has
begun leaking to the aquifer.
Arizona Department Of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) oversees the University
of Arizona's monitoring of the Page-Trowbrige radioactive/toxic waste landfill.
State of Arizona is financially liable for any problems that arise from
groundwater poisoned by the Page-Trowbrige radioactive/toxic waste landfill.

at Page-Trowbrige for several years, but ADEQ and the U of A claim the
radioactive/toxic waste landfill poses no threat to public health.
you know that the several millions of pounds of radioactive and toxic waste,
generated at the laboratories of the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona
University, Arizona State University and the Tucson Veterans Hospital,
was buried at the Page-Trowbridge disposal site?
you know that the Page-Trowbridge radioactive/toxic waste landfill sits
over the water supply for the above communities?
you know that tests on water sampled in April & November of 2000 indicate
that the Page-Trowbridge radioactive/toxic waste landfill is leaking to
you know that in 1993 the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ)
strongly recommended that a portion of this radioactive and toxic waste
be removed from the landfill before the landfill was capped, because "ADEQ
believes that the buried waste containers at the site will all ultimately
collapse over time, regardless of the installation of a cap over the landfill"?
you know that this radioactive and toxic waste was not
removed prior to capping because it would cost too much money?
