Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for the City of Severy

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the city of Severy, which is located in Greenwood County in southeastern Kansas.

KDHE issued the advisory on Nov. 1 due to a water main break which caused 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.
