To Find a Kansas Registered Dry Cleaner:
The Kansas Dry Cleaning Program was created when the Kansas Drycleaner Environmental Response Act became effective on July 1, 1995. The Program addresses facility registration, pollution prevention, and soil and groundwater contamination at retail dry cleaning facilities. A Dry Cleaning Facility Release Trust Fund was developed as a funding mechanism for conducting state-led investigations and remediation of soil and ground water contamination at sites that have applied and been accepted into the Dry Cleaning Facility Release Trust Fund.
Dry Cleaner Site File Review Process
The File Review Request Form is provided to enable Kansans to review information about remedial actions taken by the Bureau of Environmental Remediation. The online version of the form sends the request to the Bureau electronically. The PDF version of the form is provided for those who would like to mail or fax the request to the Bureau.
