Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REGULATION: GSA-EPA agreement at Bannister Federal Complex (MO)
Feds agree to cleanup at Bannister plant

Kansas City Star (MO)
April 30, 2010

A landmark agreement between two federal agencies today will result in a cleanup at part of the Bannister Federal Complex where workers have complained of health problems.

The agreement targets the roughly 40 percent of the complex owned by the General Services Administration. The GSA will begin immediately assessing the pollution at its site and will provide a work plan in 60 days, according to the agreement.

The Environmental Protection Agency engineered the agreement, which is legally binding and sets up penalties if investigations, analysis and excavation of chemicals are not done properly or within a certain schedule. The agreement states it is not any sort of admission by GSA.

"EPA's duty to protect the environment and public health also gives our agency powerful tools to help everyone concerned accomplish the long-term productive use of the Bannister Federal Complex property," said Karl Brooks, newly appointed EPA regional administrator.
