Boil Water Advisory Lifted for City of Edgerton in Johnson County, KS
(EDGERTON, Kan. – July 14, 2014) The City of Edgerton in Johnson County, KS has lifted the boil water advisory. The boil water advisory was issued on July 12 because of a loss of pressure in the system due to a system malfunction.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure.
Laboratory testing on samples collected from the City of Edgerton water supply indicate no evidence of contamination, and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by City of Edgerton and Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) officials to be resolved.

The City of Edgerton is working closely with the FRA and railroad partners to ensure corrections are made to meet the required guidelines.
