KDHE has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Fredonia public water supply system

Fredonia, KANSAS – According to the state officials, the boil water advisory was reportedly issued because of a loss of pressure due to an equipment failure.

KDHE officials said that a loss of pressure can lead to a loss in chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

Dear Kansans, the 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, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment  will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.

Laboratory testing samples collected from the City of Fredonia indicate no evidence of bacteriological contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
