Boil water advisory rescinded for the City of Deerfield

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the public water supply of the City of Deerfield located in Kearney County. The advisory was issued because the system could not maintain the minimum required chlorine residuals. Failure to maintain required chlorine residual levels may put a system at risk for bacterial contamination.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it is 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 Deerfield 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.
