Lancaster boil water advisory lifted Thursday

(KAIR)--The City of Lancaster is no longer under a boil water advisory, with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Thursday, announcing that the all clear has been given.

The City's public water supply system, located in Atchison County, was placed under the advisory Monday due to a loss of pressure, with KDHE explaining that "failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination."

However, the release issued Thursday, announcing that the advisory has been rescinded, says that "laboratory testing samples collected from the City of Lancaster indicate no evidence of bacteriological contamination and all other conditions that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."
