Boil Water Advisories Rescinded for City of Chetopa and Jefferson County RWD #10

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisories for the city Chetopa (located in Cherokee County) and for Jefferson County Rural Water District (RWD) #10.

KDHE issued the advisories on December 12 due to loss of pressure in water distribution systems 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.
