Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for the City of Overbrook

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Overbrook located in Osage County. The advisory was issued because of two-line breaks resulting in losses of pressure in the system. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.

The boil water advisory affected the following two areas of town:
• All customers on Elm Street south of Market Street. This will also affect customers on 2nd Street one block west of Elm Street.
• All customers east of Maple Street between Highway 56 and 5th Street. This also includes customers along Highway 56 east of Maple Street to the city lake (including Casey’s General Store and Grace Community Church).

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 Overbrook indicate no evidence of contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.

If you have questions, please contact the water system or you may call KDHE at 785-296-1317. For consumer information please visit KDHE’s PWS Consumer Information webpage:
