The Towns Riverview South subdivision has had its boil water advisory, that began on April 20, rescinded on Friday.

TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a Do Not Drink order for the Towns Riverview Subdivision South, located in Finney County. The order was issued in April because of unknown water quality in a secondary source used to resolve low pressure violations in the South Subdivision service area.

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 Do Not Drink order, KDHE will issue the rescind order following water quality testing and receipt of acceptable results from a certified laboratory.

Laboratory analysis of water samples collected from Towns Riverview Subdivision South indicate compliance with drinking water regulations and conditions that placed the system at risk are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.

For consumer questions, please contact the water system or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5514. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage: http://www.kdheks.gov/pws/emergencyresponse/water_disruption.htm
