Woodbine PWS Site
The North Central Kansas Cooperative Association - Woodbine Facility is roughly located in the center of the town of Woodbine, Kansas, in Dickinson County. Contamination at the Site was identified in 1992, during an investigation conducted by KDHE, when nitrate was detected in 4 domestic wells. Subsequent investigations conducted in the Site vicinity detected nitrate concentrations at concentrations up to 163 mg/L. Contaminant concentrations in groundwater have decreased to 23 mg/L in 2012. All Woodbine residents are connected to the Herington Public Water Supply System.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is asking for public comments on the agency's plan to address groundwater contamination at the Woodbine Public Water Supply (PWS) Site in Woodbine, KS. The public comment period will run October 4, 2012, to October 19, 2012.
The draft plan, called a Draft Agency Decision Statement (ADS), outlines future activities to be conducted to address contamination at the Site. The draft plan is now available for the public to review at the Herington Public Library, the KDHE office in Topeka and online at this website.
The remedial plan to address contamination at this Site, as outlined in the Draft ADS, will include groundwater monitoring and Environmental Use Controls to limit property use and potential exposure to contaminated groundwater. KDHE will review data on a routine basis and may require development and implementation of contingency plans if needed.
Public comments on the Draft ADS are now closed. All comments that were received by KDHE prior to the end of the public comment period will be addressed by KDHE in the Responsiveness Summary Section of the Final ADS.
