Kansas Environmental Information Management System (KEIMS) - BER
What Is "KEIMS"
KEIMS is a 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 retrieve information and documents about environmentally contaminated or potentially contaminated land in Kansas.
KDHE is combining multiple databases in the Division of Environment to create efficiency to benefit both state employees and the public.

This includes, but is not limited to, property owners, consultants, contractors, operators, tank owners, businesses, facility operators, entities receiving grant funding, entities receiving technical assistance, etc.
