KDHE Seeks Public Comments on Proposed Cleanup at Former Research Products Site in Salina

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is asking for public comments regarding a proposal to address environmental contamination at the Former Research Products Site at 411 N. Seventh Street, Salina. 

Research Products operated at the facility from 1965 to 1969.  On May 30, 2003, a consent order was signed between KDHE and McShares, successor to Research Products, which required the company to conduct an investigation of the contamination and evaluate clean-up alternatives under KDHE oversight.

A draft which outlines a proposal for cleanup is available for public review at the Salina Public Library, 301 W. Elm Street. 

Public comments can be submitted in writing to: Maggie Weiser, Environmental Scientist, KDHE Bureau of Environmental Remediation, 1000 SW Jackson St., Suite 410, Topeka, KS 66612-1367. Comments will be accepted until February 23.
