The Galena subsite (Cherokee County, Kansas) is characterized by surface mining waste features that impact the quality of the shallow ground water aquifer which serves as a primary source of drinking water for approximately 1,050 people. Remains from past mining activity at the subsite include: large areas covered by mine and mill wastes, water-filled subsidence craters, and open mine shafts. EPA investigations demonstrated that the shallow ground water aquifer and surface water are contaminated with elevated concentrations of metals. EPA Region VII conducted a removal action and installed water treatment units on these wells, considered as a temporary protective measure. The primary contaminants of concern observed in the private wells include: cadmium, lead, selenium, and zinc. The selected remedial actions for this site are discussed.
