Boil Water Advisory Issued for Bourbon County RWD #4, Bourbon County

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for Bourbon Co. RWD #4, which is located in Bourbon County in Southeast Kansas.

The system and/or KDHE will notify area media when the boil water advisory has been rescinded. For more information, call Roger Bradford, the operator at Bourbon Co. RWD #4, (620) 363-1508.
