Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for Jefferson Co. RWD No. 10 (Lakeshore Estates)

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for Jefferson County Rural Water District (RWD) No. 10 (Lakeshore Estates). The boil water advisory was issued on March 3 because of a loss of pressure in the water system due to a water main break.

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 Jefferson County RWD No. 10 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.
