Boil Water Advisory rescinded for City of Barnard in Lincoln Co.

TOPEKA, Kan. - The City of Barnard has rescinded the self-imposed boil water advisory local officials issued on Monday, May 20. Barnard is located in Lincoln County in north central Kansas.

The city issued the boil water advisory after a maintenance shutoff resulted in a loss of pressure in its water system. The repairs have been made successfully and laboratory testing on samples collected indicate no evidence of contamination. All other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
