WOODBINE, Kan. (AP) -- State officials are seeking public comment on plans for addressing nitrate-contaminated groundwater in east-central Kansas.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says in a release that its draft plans for the Woodbine Public Water Supply are open for public comment until Oct. 19. The plan can be reviewed at the Herington Public Library, the KDHE office in Topeka and online.

High nitrate levels were detected in 1992 in four Woodbine area wells. Those levels have since decreased but remain well above the national standard.

Woodbine residents have since been connected to Herington's water supply.

The remedial plan for Woodbine includes groundwater monitoring and limiting exposure to the contaminated groundwater.
