TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory

for the City of Linn Valley, located in Linn County. The advisory was issued because of a loss of pressure in the

system. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial

contamination.

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 Linn Valley 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.

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/
