Agency, E. P. (n.d.). 29Th and Mead Ground Water Contamination. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The 29th & Mead Ground Water Contamination site covers approximately 1,440 acres at the intersection of 29th and Mead Streets in a highly industrialized area of Wichita. Studies conducted from 1983 to 1986 by the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment (KDHE) and the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed heavy metals and organic contamination in shallow wells on and around the site. The actual boundary and the extent of ground water contamination have not been clearly defined. There are several potential industrial sources of contamination in the area that include facilities currently in operation and facilities that have ceased operations. An estimated 3,300 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells drawing from the shallow aquifer located within 3 miles of the site.
