TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil water advisory for the city of Portis public water supply system in Osborne County. The advisory was issued due to low pressure in the distribution system.
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 city of Portis 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.
If consumers have questions, contact the water system at 758-346-4020, or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information, visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage at kdhe.ks.gov/waterdisruption.
