The storage of hazardous, chemical, and nuclear wastes is one of the most intractable problems facing the United States. Based on the most comprehensive, multi-site, and multi-dimensional study completed to date on waste-facility siting and management in rural areas in the U.S., Hazardous Wastes in Rural America establishes the impacts of waste facilities for a range of rural communities that have experienced alternative stages of waste-facility siting and operation process. The work provides a comprehensive assessment of the impacts and dimensions of waste-facility siting and operation; examines the effects of waste-related projects on the labor force, business activity, and on public service costs and revenues; and investigates such key policy issues as the effects of community economic incentives, levels of community resident participation, and leader-resident differences, among others.
