Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of Canton

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of Canton, which is located in McPherson County.

KDHE issued the advisory on October 22 due to repairs being made to the system which resulted in a loss of pressure to the water distribution system. Laboratory testing on samples collected indicate no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that place the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
