Boil water advisories rescinded for Lyon County rural water districts No. 1 and 5

Multiple systems remain under boil water advisories

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded boil water advisories for Lyon County Rural Water District 1 and Lyon County RWD 5 located in Lyon County. The advisories were issued because of a line break that caused a loss of pressure. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

Laboratory testing samples collected from Lyon County RWD 1 and 5 indicated no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that placed the systems at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.

Boil water advisories remains in effect for the following public water supply systems in Lyon and Coffey counties: City of Admire, Lyon County; city of Allen, Lyon County; Coffey County Rural Water District 2E, Coffey County; City of Hartford, Lyon County; Lyon County Rural Water District 2, Lyon County; Lyon County Rural Water District 3, Lyon County; Lyon County Rural Water District 4, Lyon County; City of Olpe, Lyon County; Park Place Communities Management, Lyon County.
