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

Access to Open Records is provided to enable Kansans to review information about remedial actions taken by the Bureau of Environmental Remediation. This page provides information about how to request records from KDHE under the Kansas Open Records Act.
