Boil Water Advisories Rescinded for City of Preston and
Countryview Mobile Home Park in Hutchinson

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisories for the city of Preston in Pratt County and for the Countryview Mobile Home Park, which is located in Hutchinson.

KDHE issued the advisories last week due to loss of pressure in the 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.
