"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.
This agreement between the City of Wichita, the Coleman Company, and Wichita area businesses and lending institutions was selected as a recipient of the 1992/1993 Ford Foundation Innovations in State and Local Government Award.
