Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for the City of Wellsville, Franklin County

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of Wellsville, which is located in Franklin County in mid-eastern Kansas.  

The boil water advisory was issued on August 8, because of a loss of pressure in the water 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.
