Boil Water Advisory issued

for City of Belle Plaine

    TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the City of Belle Plaine public water supply located in Sumner County.

    KDHE officials issued the advisory because of a telemetry issue resulting in a loss of pressure. Inadequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

    The advisory took effect on December 9, 2016 and will remain in effect until conditions which placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be adequately resolved.

    Customers should observe the following precautions until further notice:

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

    Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure. 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.
