WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Wichita City Council has approved a water plan for an area near a section of the city where officials have found contaminated groundwater.

The Wichita Eagle reports the council on Tuesday approved an emergency water line for Rolling Hills Court in west Wichita.

Rolling Hills Court is next to, but not within, an area in Wichita where the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has identified groundwater contamination from a former dry cleaning business.

The emergency water line will connect residents in Rolling Hills to city water and cost about $60,000, with 85 percent payable by the improvement district and 15 percent by the Wichita water utility.

Residents had petitioned the city for the service.
