Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of McCune in Crawford Co.

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of McCune in Crawford County. The boil water advisory was issued on March 24 because of a loss of pressure in the system due to an equipment malfunction.

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 McCune 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.
