Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for the City of Caney, Montgomery County

TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for
the City of Caney public water supply system located in Montgomery County. The advisory was issued because of
a line break resulting in a loss of pressure. 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 Caney 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 at: 620-879-2772 or you may call KDHE at 785-
296-5514. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage:
