The 57th and N. Broadway site is located in the northern region of the City of Wichita, Sedgewick
County, Kansas. The site is located on the diagonal that runs from the extension of West 58th Street North
and Broadway Avenue to the southwest and extends to approximately West 46th Street North and
Armstrong Drive. The eastern boundary of the site is generally defined by Chisholm Creek (see Figure 1).
The site includes approximately 180-acres of mixed industrial, commercial, and residential properties
including a used oil re-refinery, trucking firms, municipal waste water treatment plant, an insurance
impound lot, and a school bus facility. The 57th and N. Broadway site was first identified in 1983 as a
result of local residents’ concern about the quality of drinking water in the Wichita Heights area, located
on the northern edge of the city of Wichita.
