Summerfield Boil Water Order Continues

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has issued a boil water advisory for the city of Summerfield in Marshall County.
The city has experienced a water main break that has caused the water system to lose pressure. When such a loss of pressure occurs, it is possible for contaminants to enter the system. Also, chlorine residuals may drop to levels that are inadequate to protect against bacterial contamination. Citizens are encouraged to begin conserving water, and repair crews are on scene to repair the leak.
Effective immediately, or once service is restored, customers should boil the water they use for drinking or food preparation for one minute prior to use.
The advisory will remain in effect until testing of water samples indicates no evidence of contamination and all other conditions which place the systems at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
