User: Give some background information on the site and the proposed plans to deal with the contamination

Weegy: The 29th & Mead Ground Water Contamination site covers approximately 1,440 acres at the intersection of 29th and Mead Streets in a highly industrialized area of Wichita. [ Studies conducted from 1983 to 1986 by the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment (KDHE) and the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed heavy metals and organic contamination in shallow wells on and around the site. The actual boundary and the extent of ground water contamination have not been clearly defined. There are several potential industrial sources of contamination in the area that include facilities currently in operation and facilities that have ceased operations. An estimated 3,300 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells drawing from the shallow aquifer located within 3 miles of the sit ]

User: WhatWho created this problem? Why? is the contamination?

Weegy: Entire Site: The city of Wichita and parties potentially responsible for the ground water contamination are investigating the nature and extent of contamination and identifying cleanup alternatives. [ Coleman Area (Coleman Operable Unit): In 1991, the potentially responsible party began an investigation to determine the nature and extent of soil and ground water contamination and to identify cleanup alternatives at the Coleman area. The primary contaminant at this location was found to be TCE. A remedy to address cleanup was selected in late 1992 and includes ground water pump and treatment, air stripping, and soil vapor extraction. Design of the remedy began in 1994. Installation of the ground water remedial system was completed in October 1996 and installation of the soil vapor extraction system was completed in May 2000. Both of these systems are currently operational ]

explain juvenile justice system
Weegy: Juvenile delinquency, also known as juvenile offending, or youth crime, [ is participation in illegal behavior by minors (juveniles) (individuals younger than the statutory age of majority).[1] Most legal systems prescribe specific procedures for dealing with juveniles, such as juvenile detention centers, and courts. A juvenile delinquent is a person who is typically under the age of 18 and commits an act that otherwise would have been charged as a crime if they were an adult. Depending on the type and severity of the offense committed, it is possible for persons under 18 to be charged and tried as adults. source: wikipedia ] (More)

In your opinion how serious is the Juvenile Justice system to you and why?
Weegy: Two assumptions are behind recent legislation passed in many U.S. [ states which make it easier to try juvenile offenders as adults. Young offenders will receive sentences in the adult criminal system which are harsher and more proportional to their crimes. The threat of this harsher punishment will result in lowered juvenile crime rates. Although there has not been extensive research into the deterrent effects of the stricter laws, the evidence that does exist indicates that deterrent effects are minimal or nonexistent, and that, in fact, trying juveniles in criminal court may actually result in higher rates of reoffending. ] (More)

what are some advantages about juvenile incarceration?
Weegy: Marginal treatment effect estimates offer three main advantages. First, they allow an exploration of the source of the IV results, as effects may be concentrated among particular types of judges. [ This allows us to shed light on the types of juveniles who may be deterred or whose incarceration may lead to a life of crime. Second, the slope of the function provides evidence as to whether the correlated random coefficient problem is a concern. A flat MTE function would offer evidence that juveniles are not selected into custody such that those who “benefit most” from it are those who enter. A sloped MTE function can shed light on the margin at which particular types of juveniles are prone to be impacted by juvenile incarceration. Third, the monotonicity assumption is arguably less problematic at the level of the MTE. A well known result is that if the average treatment effect of incarceration for “compliers”—those who are induced into custody due to the judge assignment—is the same for “defiers”—those who are induced to not enter custody because they are assigned to what appears to be a relatively strict judge—then the bias disappears. This is unlikely to be true when the youths differ significantly, but in a marginal treatment effect setting juveniles are compared in a manner that 12 their unobservables should be similar—they are induced into (or out of) custody due to an infinitesimally small change in the incarceration propensity of the judge. ] (More)

What is the Juvenile system trying to teach incarcerated juveniles?
Weegy: Studies indicate that incarcerating young offenders is not the most effective way of curbing delinquency and reducing crime. The relationship between detention of young offenders and the rate of overall youth criminality is not evident. [ A study of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's arrest data for the 1990s reveals that the rise in detention was unrelated to crime rates. That is, detention as a tactic of controlling young offenders has little to nothing to do with the rate of crime or the “threat” that youth pose to the public.[23] While there may be an individual need to incarcerate violent or high-risk youth, most of the young people in prisons, jails and detention centers today—up to 70%—are serving time for nonviolent offenses.[24] Not all delinquent youth are incarcerated—in fact, as many as one-third of all Americans might engage in delinquent behavior at some point in their youth. But those that are detained or imprisoned are less likely to grow out of their delinquency than those that are not. Criminologists recognize a natural process of desistance called “aging out” of delinquency, through which a person desists their delinquent behavior through maturation and experience. Detaining or incarcerating youth can interrupt or slow down the aging out process, resulting in a longer period of delinquency ] (More)
