Dry cleaning can leave a really big mess behind. One of the largest plumes of toxic dry cleaning waste ever discovered in Kansas is located just south of Wichita.  As Brian Grimmett of the Kansas News Service reports, state environmental officials are working to make sure people in the path of the chemical plume have clean drinking water.

The Kansas News Service is a collaboration among public media to cover health, education and politics across the state.
