Sumner County, KANSAS – According to the statement, the advisory was issued because of a loss of pressure in the distribution system.
Failure to maintain adequate pressure may lead to a loss of chlorine residuals and result in 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 Prairie Schooner Mobile Home Court 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.
For consumer questions, please contact the water system at 316-777-4533 or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514.
