KDHE rescinds boil-water advisory for Durham

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil-water advisory for the public water supply in the city of Dur?ham. The city issued the advisory because of a loss of pressure due to a water main break. Inadequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination. Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it?s the supplier or KDHE that announces a boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.
Laboratory testing samples collected from the Durham public 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.
