THE SECOND WEEPING WATERS AWARD
The creative public service alert introduces Springfield, Mo. as role model for any urban, suburban or rural community where exposure to slime, sludge, mold and other water-related problems exist.
She is an advocate of mandatory full disclosure by the real estate industry and others who promote and sell real property, and she lauds municipal bodies and government agencies like the City of Springfield that take positive action to condemn, purchase and/or otherwise reclaim blighted land through conservation-oriented projects which benefit both public and private sectors.
Sponsor of this public-service scroll, designed to alert potential property buyers to inquire about flooding before signing contracts to purchase land or real estate, is Henry N. Goldman, 2007 Senior Poet Laureate of Georgia. His sponsorship covers posting “FLOODVILLE, U.S.A.” throughout 2009 on this website.
