Boil advisory issued for Jefferson Co Lakeside Village
04/15/2019

(KAIR)--A boil water advisory is now in place for the Lakeside Village Improvement District located in Jefferson County. 

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment issued the advisory Monday due to what a release from the KDHE says was a loss of pressure. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

The advisory will remain in effect until the conditions that placed the system at risk of bacterial contamination are resolved.

Affected customers in that location are told to boil all water to be consumed for one minute prior to usage.

Customers should observe the following precautions until further notice:

  • If your tap water appears dirty, flush the water lines by letting the water run until it clears.

  • Boil water for one minute prior to drinking or food preparation or use bottled water.

  • Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic icemaker.

  • Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.

  • Water used for bathing does not generally need to be boiled. Supervision of children is necessary while bathing so that water is not ingested. Persons with cuts or severe rashes may wish to consult their physicians.

  • If you have questions, please contact the water system or you may call KDHE at 785-296-5795. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage:http://www.kdheks.gov/pws/emergencyresponse/water_disruption.htm

    Restaurants and other food establishments that have questions about the impact of the boil water advisory on their business can contact the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s food safety & lodging program at [email protected] or call 785-564-6767.
