Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is soliciting public comments regarding a proposal to address environmental contamination at the Pauline Farm Store (Former FCA) Site in Topeka, Kansas. KDHE will select a final remedy for the Site after reviewing and considering all information submitted during the 15-day public comment period February 2 through February 16, 2023.
The draft Agency Decision Statement (ADS) presents KDHE’s preferred alternative for the Site; however, KDHE may modify the alternative or select another response action based on current information or public comments. The draft ADS is a document that outlines the proposal for cleanup and is available for public review in multiple ways:
Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, 1515 SW 10th Ave., Topeka, KS 66604
KDHE Bureau of Environmental Remediation, Curtis State Office Building, 1000 SW Jackson Street, Suite 410,Topeka, KS 66612
