Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for Woodson County Rural Water District No. 1
TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the Woodson County Rural Water District No. 1 water supply system. The advisory was issued because the water system was unable maintain the minimum required chlorine residual.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it’s the supplier or KDHE that announces a boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.
Laboratory testing samples collected from the Woodson County Rural Water District No. 1 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.
For consumer questions, please contact the water system or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage: http://www.kdheks.gov/pws/emergencyresponse/water_disruption.htm
