Boil water advisory rescinded for Osage County RWD 8

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil water advisory for a portion of Osage County Rural Water District 8. The advisory affected the portion of the water district located north of state Highway 4, in Wabaunsee and Shawnee counties.

The advisory was issued because of a line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the system. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

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