KDHE Rescinds Boil Advisory

ELK CITY, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) rescinds a boil water advisory for the City of Elk City, Kansas. KDHE issued the advisory because of a line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the distribution system.

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

For consumer questions, you can contact the water system or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage.
