Originally posted on August 9, 2016


ELLIS COUNTY, Kan. Part of Ellis County is under a boil water advisory. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) issued the advisory for Ellis County Rural Water District No. 6.

The advisory was issued because monthly monitoring for bacteria hasn’t been completed, the KDHE says. The rural water district impacted includes portions of the county northeast of Hays.

The KDHE suggests that those impacted by the advisory don’t ingest any water before boiling it, or that they use bottled water.
