Summerfield Under Boil Water Order!

KDHE recommend the following for residents of the district:

  • Boil water for one minute prior to drinking or food preparation, or use bottled water.
  •  

  • Use only boiled water for drinking, diluting fruit juices, and all other food preparation.
  •  

  • Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic icemaker.
  •  

  • Remake ice cubes with water that has been boiled.
  •  

  • Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains 1 teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
  •  

  • Water used for bathing does not generally need to be boiled.
  •  

  • Supervision of children is necessary while bathing or using backyard pools so water is not ingested.
  •  

  • Persons with cuts or severe rashes may wish to consult their physicians.

There was no word on exactly when the boil order would be lifted.
