FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 3, 2010

Boil advisory lifted

Kansas City, Missouri Water Services has lifted the boil advisory for the area south of Gregory, east of I-435, west of Booth, and north of 77th Street.

Results from samples collected in the area yielded no evidence of contamination, according to Laboratory Manager Lorene Lindsay.

A water sample result reported on May 1, 2010 revealed the sample was positive for E. coli, a common indicator for water quality. The positive sample was collected on April 30, 2010 from a recently installed fire hydrant at 7400 Sycamore. As a precautionary measure, the Water Services Department issued a boil order for the area, but that order has now been lifted.

The Water Services Department collects samples from all areas affected by a water main break or when repairs are made to the distribution system as a precautionary measure. When repairs are being made the distribution system is vulnerable to contamination from soil and other debris that can be dislodged and enter into the exposed pipe.

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Water Services Department maintains and operates water collection, processing and distribution systems, stormwater management and control systems, and waste water collection and processing systems for residential and business customers in Kansas City and for wholesale customers in the Kansas City.
