Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of Overbrook

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Overbrook, which is located in northeast Osage County.

KDHE issued the advisory on January 13 due to a break in a water main which caused the water tower to drain, resulting in a loss of pressure in the distribution 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.
