MEDIA ADVISORY: Boil Water Advisory for the City of Independence Rescinded

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the city of Independence. The advisory was issued on July 2 due to recent flooding.

The following rural water district systems that purchase their water from Independence remain under a boil water advisory. These systems will be flushed and tested over the next several days to determine if the boil water advisory for these systems can be rescinded.
