Public health group to hold meeting on west Wichita groundwater contamination

November 09, 2015

WICHITA, KAN. - The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita is leading a series of community engagement meetings and listening sessions with adult residents impacted by the groundwater contamination from the former Four Seasons Dry Cleaners site in west Wichita.

The final listening session will be held at the Sedgwick County Research and Extension building (7001 W. 21st St. N, Wichita, KS) in the Sunflower Room at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10. The listening session will take approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours.   

The listening session is an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts about the remediation efforts to date, in addition to current needs and concerns they might have.  

The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita is partnering with Wichita State University on this project through a grant funded by the Wichita Medical Research and Education Foundation (WMREF). The information gathered from this meeting will be analyzed with the other listening sessions, and reports will be made available to residents in the affected community and interested others. Reports will also be provided to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the City of Wichita for their use, to support efforts currently in place.
