Tucson Airport Authority is involved in an extensive remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated by industrial solvents used during WWII. Since 2007, TAA has been operating a groundwater treatment facility on the west side of Tucson International Airport, which uses air stripping to remove Volatile Organic Compounds from shallow groundwater. The airport continues to monitor soil, water and air quality and is proactive in protecting these aspects of our environment.
