Boil water advisory rescinded for city of Ottawa

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil water advisory for the city of Ottawa in Franklin County, Kan.

KDHE officials issued the advisory because compressed air entered the distribution during maintenance on the irrigation system at the high school, which put the system at risk for contamination. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

Laboratory testing samples collected from the system indicate no evidence of contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
