Boil Water Advisory Rescinded
for the City of Woodston and Rooks County RWD #1

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Woodston and Rooks County RWD #1 water systems, located in northeast Rooks County. Both systems serve a combined population of approximately 300 persons.

KDHE issued the advisory on February 9 due to a major leak and subsequent repair, which caused an interruption in water service resulting in little or no water pressure. 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.
