Spills, discharges, and emergency releases can cause serious harm to public health and the environment. Federal and state laws require federal and/or state agencies be notified in the event of an accidental spillage of any materials that may pollute water, air, or soil.

Updated Spill Notification and Reporting Procedures

The State of Kansas has created a single hotline for Spill and Hazard reporting. The new hotline number, as of December 1, 2014, is: (785) 291-3333. This number is to be used for reporting all spills and hazards. Depending on the nature of the spill or hazard, the call will automatically be forwarded to the appropriate state agency.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Kansas Division of Emergency Management (KDEM) are two of several state agencies that address spills. We've also included some contact information on this page for use in the event of flooding or fish kills.
