Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for Ellsworth RWD #1

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for Ellsworth Rural Water District (RWD) #1, commonly referred to as Post Rock RWD.

KDHE issued the advisory on December 16 due to a loss of pressure in the water distribution system resulting from the recent ice storms. 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.
