Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for the cities of Paradise and
Waldo in Russell Co. and Osborne Rural Water District #2

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the cities of Paradise and Waldo public water systems, located in Russell County in Kansas and Osborne County Rural Water District #2.

The boil water advisory was issued on September 18, because of a loss of pressure in the water system these public water supplies all obtain their water from. 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.
