Media Advisory: Boil Water Order Rescinded for Doniphan County RWD #3

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water order for Doniphan County Rural Water District #3. The RWD sells water to customers in the Denton and Severance areas of Doniphan County.

KDHE issued the advisory on October 3 due to a line break and loss of pressure to the system. 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.

For more information, call Joe Blubaugh, KDHE, Topeka at (785) 296-5795 or Chuck Fuhrman at (785) 359-6705.
