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 Buckner Creek located North of Cimarron, Kansas from Gray County Road 20 to Horsethief Canyon Lake in Hodgeman County.
The stream advisory is a result of water contamination from a confined animal feeding operation. The advisory has been issued because elevated bacteria and contaminants may be present in Buckner Creek located North of Cimarron, 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 bacteria testing indicates secondary (wading) contact has been deemed safe.
