Rush County RWD 1 Boil Water Advisory Rescinded

Boil Water AdvisoryThe Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for Rush County Rural Water District 1 located in Rush County.

The advisory was issued because of a positive bacteriological sample.

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 Rush County RWD 1 indicate no evidence of contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
