Treece, Kansas: Ghost Town in the Making

After the Environmental Protection Agency designated the southeast Kansas town of Treece a "Superfund" site, almost all of its residents took advantage of a government buy-out and moved away. Amidst the headlines and the exodus, hear the story of a community coming to terms with the loss of their hometown. This story was produced by Nina Porzucki, Chaela Herridge-Meyer and Carl Scott of The Recollective, a multimedia storytelling collaborative that produces documentary projects for the web and radio. Funding for this project was provided by a generous grant from the Kansas Humanities Council.
