| Boil water advisory lifted|
The advisory was issued because of an electrical failure that led to a loss of chlorine residual. Two failures occurred at the Chisholm Creek Utility Authority, which resulted in KDHE issuing the advisory. The first problem was that the injector pump for chlorine quit working. The other malfunction occurred in a computerized system that monitors the chlorine levels in the water and notifies the necessary parties if there is an issue. That system was down at the time of the injector pump issue and did not recognize or report any problems with the chlorine levels.
