"Wichita's success story ... establishing a public-private partnership to solve a complex environmental problem."--Cover "Throughout America there are thousands of potential "Superfund" sites - areas in which environmental contamination is so severe, the federal government deems it necessary to mandate cleanup ... local government decisions ... will be guided by issues of legal and financial liability, and will profoundly affect both the public and private sectors, influencing property values, and in turn, the tax base."--Introduction
