Funding for this research was provided by the National Orphaned/Abandoned Mines Working Group.

The views presented in this report are based on an array of perspectives provided through an interview process in a short time-frame during July 2002. The Lessons Learned are the summary perspectives of CCSG Associates and do not reflect the views of all members of the Task Force.

Primary research, writing and analysis were conducted by Lana Miller, Sue Moodie, Lisa Sumi, and Sandra Thomsen for CCSG Associates.

Graphics were designed by Cameron Johnson and Guinivieve Lalena.

The research has been based on the contributions of an extensive array of interviews. The authors would like to thank all the government employees, contractors, researchers, technical assistants, academics, and other professionals who contributed to the diversity of perspectives presented. The researchers are grateful to the community members who graciously contributed their time and consideration on very short notice. The depth of your experience and duration of your efforts provides a strong direction for future community involvement in contaminated site remediation. Thanks are also extended to Leslie Leahy of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for providing case studies on what the Agency has learned about community involvement at Superfund sites.
