MEDIA ADVISORY: Boil Water Advisory for Osage Co. RWD #2 Rescinded

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for Osage County Rural Water District #2, located in east central Osage County and a small portion of west central Franklin County. The advisory was issued on June 14 due to a water main rupture and loss of pressure in the system.

Repairs to the water system have been completed and service has been restored. Laboratory testing indicates no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that place the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.

Customers with questions may contact Osage County RWD #2 at (785) 633-5455 or (785) 453-2356.
