UPDATE: Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for Saline Co. Water District

KSAL StaffApril 14, 2017

A boil water advisory for a Saline County water district has been rescinded.

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment a boil water advisory for the public water supply Saline Co. RWD 2 in Saline County has been rescinded. The advisory had been issued because of a line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the system. 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 is 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 Saline Co. RWD 2 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.
