[ARCHIVED] Stream Advisory Issued for the Kansas River located near Ogden, Kansas

For Immediate Release Graphic

Residents and animals should not enter the water at this time.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a stream advisory for the Kansas River near Ogden, Kansas.

The stream advisory is a result of operation problems at the Fort Riley Wastewater Treatment Plant, which resulted in a wastewater discharge containing elevated bacteria levels. The Fort Riley Wastewater Treatment Plant has repaired the problem.

The advisory has been issued because potential elevated bacteria and contaminants may be present in the Kansas River near Ogden, Kansas. If you live or have activities near this stream, do not enter the stream or allow children or pets to enter the stream.

KDHE will rescind the advisory once flows recede, and subsequent bacteria testing indicates secondary (wading) contact has been deemed safe.

For further information, please contact Chad Lough, Fort Riley Treatment Facilities Superintendent, at 785.370.1235.
