Boil water advisory for Harper County is rescinded

August 11, 2020 - 6:28 pm

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for Harper County RWD 4, located in Harper County. The advisory was issued because the water district was unable to maintain the minimum required chlorine residual. Failure to maintain required chlorine residual levels may put the system at risk for bacterial contamination. 

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 Harper County RWD 4 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.
