Site Narrative:
In July 2000, KDHE found Century Lubricants eligible for the Voluntary Cleanup and Property Redevelopment Program (VCPRP). On August 7, 2000 the Voluntary Agreement was signed by the Secretary at KDHE.  
 
The subject property is formerly known as the Textilana Nease, Kansas City Site which manufactured detergents from middle of the 1960's until about 1980 when it began to manufacture industrial lubricants. Significant levels of residual contamination were found in a couple of the monitoring wells located in the vicinity of the former lined wastewater lagoons and the production building. In addition, benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, xylenes, phenol and phenolic semi-volatiles were also observed.  
 
The environmental consultant for Century Lubricants conducted a direct-push soil sampling in the vicinity of proposed buildings A and B in February 2001. Based on the analytical results, the environmental consultant developed a work plan for handling the soil removed during the construction activities of the new buildings. KDHE approved the work plan in May of 2001.  
 
In February of 2002, KDHE completed its review of the Century Lubricants VCI work plan. Subsequent responses and additional comments were conducted over the telephone with the consultant from April to October of 2002. Phase I of the field work activities were conducted between October 8-22, 2002 utilizing direct-push technology to delineate the extent of contamination in soil and groundwater at the site. KDHE reviewed the investigation report and suggested that a meeting between KDHE, Century and the consultant was needed to discuss some major unresolved concerns. As a result, a meeting in May of 2003 occurred with the following concerns discussed: 1. Addressing surface spills throughout the site. 2. Delineating toluene and xylenes contamination in soil and groundwater under the north side of the building. 3. Delineating the off-site, north of the site. 4. Delineating groundwater contamination off-site near the west central side of the property line. 5. Delineating elevated arsenic levels present in surficial and subsurface soils in former unlined lagoon and lined lagoon.  
 
Century Lubricants have been doing an internal review to determine their best course of action which may involve a transfer of the site to the State Cooperative Unit. Negotiations on an agreement between KDHE and Century Lubricants are currently underway. Fuchs decided to stay in the VCPRP. Currently, groundwater has been delineated; however, soil has not. An interim remedial action was approved 1/30/07 that included the installation of a SVE system. A VCI Work Plan was approved 10/30/08 to complete soil delineation.  
 
Interim remedial measure SVE/AS system is in operation. A VCI Report was submitted to KDHE on 3/3/2011. The document was reviewed and a comment letter was sent on 4/8/2011. Lastest GW and SVE monitoring report approved July 2017.
