TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded the public health advisory for Buckner Creek in Gray County. No further advisories remain for Gray or Hodgeman Counties.

Laboratory testing samples collected from Buckner Creek indicate levels of naturally occurring bacteria conform with state water quality standards.  The health risks of contacting the water caused by conditions last week have subsided.
