Abstract Barnes, Kansas, is a small rural community (population approximately 150) located in Washington County, in north-central Kansas. Barnes is located in Section 9, Township 4 South, Range 5 East, at approximate latitude 39 43 0 north and longitude 96 52 25 west (USGS 1968). The city lies in a transition zone between the Flint Hills and the glaciated region. The area's topography consists of gently sloping hills of Pleistocene loess (< 20 ft) overlying a shale unit and interbedded shale, limestone, and siltstone of the Permian Chase Group. Groundwater for the public water supply is obtained from wells PWS2 and PWS3 at reported depths of 155 ft and 160 ft, respectively, located in the northwestern portion of the city. The water is produced from the bedrock aquifer of the Chase Group. Section 2 summarizes of the hydrogeologic conceptual site model. In 1986, low levels of carbon tetrachloride were detected in public supply wells PWS2 and PWS3, below the maximum contaminant level of 5.0 ig/L for carbon tetrachloride in drinking water. Multiple samplings of the wells in 1986-1996 found repeated sporadic detections of carbon tetrachloride at low concentrations.
