TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the water systems in the Jefferson County Rural Water District 10.

The advisory was issued June 22 because of a loss of pressure due to a power outage. A loss of pressure can potentially cause a loss in chlorine and bacterial contamination.

Officials at KDHE said samples collected from the water system indicate the system is no longer at risk of contamination and deemed the issue resolved.
