(previous story)

A boil water advisory has been issued for part of Sedgwick County. 

A line break led to a loss of pressure in Rural Water District Four, which includes much of Sedgwick County south of Goddard. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment stated the advisory affects all customers south of US-54/Kellogg.

The KDHE recommends boiling water for one minute before drinking it or using it to prepare food, disposing of ice cubes, and using one teaspoon of bleach per gallon of water when washing dishes.

The advisory was issued August 30 and will remain in effect until the conditions that put the system at risk of contamination are resolved.
