TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Columbus public water supply system.

Officials say the advisory was put in place initially because the distribution system lost pressure. This loss of pressure made it possible for bacteria to contaminate the water supply.

Recent testing samples collected from the City of Columbus indicate no evidence of bacteriological contamination. Officials say the conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
