Boil Water Advisory Issued for City of Leonardville, Riley Co.

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the city of Leonardville public water system, located in Riley County in north central Kansas. 

The city water supply has experienced a loss of pressure in the water system due to a water main break. When such a loss of pressure occurs, it is possible for contaminants to enter the system. Chlorine residuals may also drop to levels that are inadequate to protect against bacterial contamination.
Effective immediately, customers should observe the following precautions until further notice:

The system and/or KDHE will notify area media when the boil water advisory has been rescinded. For more information, contact city hall, 785-293-5211.
