TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil water advisory for Barton County Community College. The advisory was issued because of a loss of pressure.
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 Barton County Community College 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.
For consumer questions, contact the water system or KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage, www.kdheks.gov/pws/emergencyresponse/water_disruption.htm.
