Boil order issued for Manhattan mobile home park.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) — A boil order advisory has been issued for a mobile home park in Riley Co.
The Kansas Dept.
of Health and Environment issued the order Friday for the Riverchase Mobile Home Park, 4440 Tuttle Creek Blvd., in Manhattan.
The agency said a power failure resulted in a loss of pressure.
A lack of pressure can cause a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.
Until further notice, people in the park are asked to: 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 an automatic icemaker 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 physicians If your tap water appears dirty, flush the water ines by letting the water run until it clears KDHE says it will rescind the boil order after the water is tested at a certified laboratory.
