What is "KEIMS"?

KEIMS is a new online data management system built to improve communication, enable sharing of site information, and increase the ease and accessibility of business conducted between various regulatory programs within KDHE and the regulated community. KEIMS can be accessed by both internal users (state employees) and external users (site owners, consultants, etc.) to retrieve information and documents about environmentally contaminated or potentially contaminated land in Kansas.

KDHE is combining multiple databases in the Division of Environment to create efficiency to benefit both state employees and the public.

Who can be a KEIMS user?

Anyone who is regulated or involved with the KDHE regulatory oversight of environmental sites in Kansas. This includes, but is not limited to, property owners, consultants, contractors, operators, tank owners, businesses, facility operators, entities receiving grant funding, entities receiving technical assistance, etc.

What will be available in KEIMS?

After creating a KEIMS account, you will be able to submit, review, and revise applications, registrations, permits, renewal forms, and reports, and eventually make and track payments (payment portal is still under construction) pertaining to your site(s).

How do I get to KEIMS?

Go to: https://keims.kdhe.ks.gov/nsuite/ncore/external/home.

You will need to create an account to log-in to KEIMS. For step-by-step instructions and a walkthrough of KEIMS, please see the BER KEIMS External User Manual.
