Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of Medicine Lodge in Barber Co.

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of Medicine Lodge in Barber County.

The boil water advisory was issued on June 17 because of a loss of chlorine residual in the distribution system due to a malfunction in the chlorine injection system. Laboratory testing on samples collected indicate no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
