GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) -- The Environmental Protection Agency is collecting soil and water samples this month from industrial sites in Great Bend.

The Great Bend Tribune (http://bit.ly/QM3jpl ) reported that the samples will be taken from around the former O'Neill Tank site and the former Plating Inc. site near the Great Bend Municipal Airport.

Plating Inc. is a contaminated site that is monitored by EPA's Superfund Division, under a federal program to clean up uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

Meanwhile, officials are trying to determine is there's contamination at the former O'Neill Tank site. EPA spokesman David Bryan says oil and water samples collected at the O'Neill Tank site and adjacent properties will assess low-level radium contamination and other possible contaminants, such as arsenic, chromium and other metals.
