News release from KDHE Please see the attached news release from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. KDHE officials issued the advisory because of an event within the Miami County Rural Water District No. 2 plant that resulted in turbidity or brown water entering the system. The City of Spring Hill does not produce water but rather obtains all water from Miami County RWD2. This does not impact WaterOne customers.
It is important to note that a boil water advisory does NOT mean the water is compromised or unsafe to consume but the possibility exists. A boil water advisory is a voluntary public statement advising consumers to boil tap water vigorously for at least one minute before consuming it. Advisories are issued when an event has occurred that possibly compromised the quality of the water.
