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 Mill Creek from 18th Road to Little Blue River located Northeast of Washington, Kansas.
The stream advisory is a result of a discharge of crude oil from a TC Energy pipeline. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), KDHE and TC Energy are working to ensure proper cleanup of the site.
If you live or have activities near this stream, do not enter the stream or allow livestock, children, or pets to enter the stream.
KDHE will rescind the advisory once the stream has been deemed safe for secondary (wading) contact and livestock use.
For further information, please contact Brittany Brockway with TC Energy at 402.889.2060.
