Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of Troy in Doniphan Co.

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of Troy in Doniphan County. The boil water advisory was issued by the public water supplier on Feb. 24 because of a loss of pressure in the system due to a water main break. KDHE will issue a boil water advisory on behalf of a supplier if the supplier requests assistance in notifying its customers; on Feb. 24, the City of Troy made its own notifications to customers and the public through local news media.

Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure. Regardless of whether the supplier or the system announces the boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at the Kansas Health and Environmental Laboratories.

Laboratory testing on samples collected from the City of Troy water supply 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.
