Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for University Park Water District, Riley Co.


TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the University Park water district located in Riley County.  The advisory was issued because the system was replacing valves, which may have caused a loss of pressure.  Failure to maintain adequate 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 is 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 University Park water district 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.

###

KDHE's mission is to protect and improve the health and environment of all Kansans.
