State receives fed money for cleanup projects

Arizona has received federal stimulus money for cleanup of contamination from leaking underground fuel storage tanks throughout Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality announced Thursday it received $3.2 million in federal funds through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009.

The funding will be used by ADEQ’s Tank Programs Division to clean up leaking tanks at up to 23 facilities including two school sites in Buckeye and Yuma.
