For the second time in two weeks, the City of Wellsville is under a boil water advisory, according to a news release.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) issued a boil water advisory Tuesday afternoon because of a line break which caused a loss of pressure, the release said. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination, KDHE said.
The boil order will remain in effect until the conditions that placed the system at risk of bacterial contamination are resolved, according to the release.
The earlier boil order was issued April 12 for a line break and was rescinded on April 18.
