Former American Cleaners Dry Cleaners Site
KDHE's Dry Cleaning Remediation Program is addressing impacts to private water supply wells caused by the former American Cleaners site in Haysville. Public Availability Sessions were held on August 17, and September 7, 2017, at the Haysville Alternative High School. Residents using a private water well within the affected area are encouraged to contact KDHE at 785-291-3252 to have their well sampled.

New Policy: Contaminated Groundwater and Surface Water Intersection
KDHE developed the policy BER-049 - Contaminated Groundwater and Surface Water Intersection as of July 5, 2017 to provide guidance for determining whether groundwater contamination poses harm to a surface water body.

Policy Update: Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL) Characterization, Remediation, and Management
KDHE has updated its policy BER-041 - Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL) Characterization, Remediation, and Management as of May 24, 2017. The updated policy provides additional clarification regarding its use and the associated analytical methods, without the overall framework established in the original policy.
