More than 20 years ago, Oklahoma's Tar Creek hazardous waste site became one of the first slated for Superfund cleanup. Two decades and $100 million later, the site remains on the Superfund list. Many residents are urging the federal government to buy their homes so they can move elsewhere. NPR's Greg Allen reports. July 16, 2003 (Please note this story was corrected on air on July 17, 2003: "A couple of corrections about our story yesterday on the Superfund site of Tar Creek, Oklahoma. Lucy Boone writes from Norman, Oklahoma to remind us that the governor of that state, Brad Henry, is a Democrat, not a Republican as we reported. Ms. Boone says, 'We Oklahoma Democrats worked very hard to get Mr. Henry elected and would appreciate NPR recognizing this fact. Oh, and by the way, Miami is in Florida. In Oklahoma it is pronounced My-am-uh!'")
