This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
This location is located on the Gila River Indian Reservation. No records of the companies existence is available other than the EPA information regarding it's clean-up status. Which is listed as completed despite asbestos insulation still at the site. I'm not sure if that is included in their clean-up efforts. The site is really trashed, it's been abandoned for 15-20 years. Every inch of the walls, ceilings and remaining equipment is covered in graffiti. The location has also been heavily hit by metal scrappers. I imagine the Gila River Indian Tribe owns the site which would explain the condition it is currently in.

    I've tried for hours, can't find anything out about this place. The only reason I found the name was because it was a former Arizona Superfund site.
