The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the Butler County Rural Water District 6 public water supply system located in Butler County. The advisory was issued for a portion of the water supply system because of a loss of pressure in the distribution system due to a line break. It affected the area bounded by Southeast 20th Street to Southeast 400 Highway and 54 Highway to Coldcreek Road.
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 Butler County Rural Water District 6 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 at 316-320-1301 or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage: kdhe.ks.gov/waterdisruption.
