The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Spring Hill Water District and Johnson County Water District 7. The advisory was issued because of a water line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the system.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it is 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 Spring Hill indicate no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
The Spring Hill Public Works Department advises that should you notice a slight discoloration in your water, running the water for a few minutes may improve its clarity. However, in some instances the discoloration may last for a day or two. KDHE has confirmed that the water is safe for consumption and everyday use.
