Kansas Dry Cleaning Program

The Kansas Dry Cleaning Program was created when the Kansas Dry Cleaner Environmental Response Act became effective on July 1, 1995. The Program addresses facility registration, pollution prevention, and soil and groundwater contamination at retail dry cleaning facilities. A Dry Cleaning Facility Release Trust Fund was developed as a funding mechanism for conducting state-led investigations and remediation of soil and groundwater contamination at sites that have applied and been accepted into the Dry Cleaning Facility Release Trust Fund.
