KDHE issued the boil water advisories on July 17 and 18, because of a loss of pressure in the water system.

Posted July 18, 2012:  News release from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment:

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the city of Bronson, which is located in Bourbon County in Southeast Kansas.This advisory is related to the boil water advisory issued on July 17 for Bourbon Co. RWD #4.

The city of Bronson purchases its water from Bourbon RWD #4 and the city has experienced a loss of pressure in the water system due to the water problems at Bourbon RWD #4. When such a loss of pressure occurs, it is possible for contaminants to enter the system. Chlorine residuals may also drop to levels that are inadequate to protect against bacterial contamination. 

Effective once service is restored, customers should observe the following precautions until further notice: 

  •  
    • Boil water for one minute prior to drinking or food preparation, or use bottled water. 
    • Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic ice maker. 
    • Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
    • Water used for bathing does not generally need to be boiled. Supervision of children is necessary while bathing so that water is not ingested. Persons with cuts or severe rashes may wish to consult their physicians.
    • If your tap water appears dirty, flush the water lines by letting the water run until it clears. 

The system and/or KDHE will notify area media when the boil water advisory has been rescinded. For more information, call Ellen Harper, at city of Bronson, 620-939-4578.
