The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the public water supply Neosho Co. RWD 12 located in Neosho County. The boil water advisory affects customers south of Highway 39. Customers north of Highway 39 are not affected at this time. KDHE officials issued the advisory 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.
The advisory took effect on February 27, 2017, and will remain in effect until the conditions that place the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be adequately resolved.
Customers should observe the following precautions until further notice:
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure. 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.
