User: Give some background information on the site and the proposed plans to deal with the contamination

Weegy: 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 sit ]

User: WhatWho created this problem? Why? is the contamination?

Weegy: Entire Site: The city of Wichita and parties potentially responsible for the ground water contamination are investigating the nature and extent of contamination and identifying cleanup alternatives. [ Coleman Area (Coleman Operable Unit): In 1991, the potentially responsible party began an investigation to determine the nature and extent of soil and ground water contamination and to identify cleanup alternatives at the Coleman area. The primary contaminant at this location was found to be TCE. A remedy to address cleanup was selected in late 1992 and includes ground water pump and treatment, air stripping, and soil vapor extraction. Design of the remedy began in 1994. Installation of the ground water remedial system was completed in October 1996 and installation of the soil vapor extraction system was completed in May 2000. Both of these systems are currently operational ]
