No evidence of contamination

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the public water supply Butler CO RWD 3 and Public Wholesale Water District 8 in Butler County.  KDHE officials issued the advisory because of a loss of pressure. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and 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 the public water supply Butler CO RWD 3 and Public Wholesale Water District 8 in Butler County 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.
