TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the public water supply located in the City of Thayer in Neosho County.

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The system and/or KDHE will notify area media when the boil water advisory has been rescinded.
