Boil advisory issued for Saline County RWD 2
Boil advisory issued for Saline County RWD 2.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is advising that customers of Saline County Rural Water District No.
2 boil their water before use because of a line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the system.
Failure to maintain adequate pressure could result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.
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 ice maker.
• 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 physician.
