NEOSHO COUNTY, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) rescinded a boil water advisory Friday for the Neosho County Rural Water District 12 public water supply system. The advisory was issued Wednesday because of a loss of pressure in the system. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown, KDHE said in a press release. 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 Neosho County Rural Water District 12 indicate no evidence of bacteriological contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination have been deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
For consumer questions, residents are asked to contact the water system at 620-433-9793 or call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information, visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage at kdhe.ks.gov/waterdisruption.
