Earlier this year KDHE contracted with GSI Engineering to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the contamination attributed to the former Frank’s Wash and Dry Cleaners in Seneca. We prepared a plan of action, deciding to use direct push technology to collect groundwater samples and hydrogeologic information.
Seeing this as a perfect opportunity to get local university students involved, KDHE and GSI Engineering hosted a geology class from Kansas State University, led by Dr. Saugata Datta, on April 10, 2017. KDHE and GSI staff members Kelsee Wheeler and Rick Bean were able to demonstrate the technology being used, discussed various aspects of the project with the students, and explained the methods being used to collect data.
