In 1996, the Legislature created the Abandoned Well Plugging and Site Remediation Fund. The legislation established an annual reporting procedure whereby the Kansas Corporation Commission accounts for the number of abandoned wells in Kansas, the funds available to plug abandoned wells, and the multiyear plan for addressing abandoned wells by creating a prioritization schedule.
This is an ongoing project. More than 11,200 wells have been plugged since establishment of the funds.
You can report an abandoned well here.
