What is "KEIMS"?

KEIMS is the new online data management system built to improve communication, enable sharing of site information, and increase the ease and accessibility of business conducted between various regulatory programs within KDHE and the regulated community. KEIMS can be accessed by both internal users (state employees) and external users (site owners, consultants, etc.) to create and manage applications, submissions, and even payments. This combining of multiple databases in the Division of Environment will create efficiencies to benefit both state employees, the regulated communities, and the public.

Who can be a KEIMS user?

Anyone who is regulated or involved with the KDHE regulatory oversight of environmental sites in Kansas. This includes, but is not limited to, permittees, property owners, consultants, contractors, operators, tank owners, businesses, facility operators, entities receiving grant funding, entities receiving technical assistance, etc.

What will be available in KEIMS?

After creating a KEIMS account, you will be able to submit, review, and revise a variety of documents including applications, registrations, permits, renewal forms, and reports pertaining to your site(s). You will also be able to make and track payments for fees and invoices.
