Monitoring Requirements Not Met for City of RUSSELL, KS

We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During the Third Quarter of 2022 we did not monitor Atrazine as required by Kansas Administrative Regulations. Even though this was not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation. 

What should I do?    You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

What does this mean?  This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What happened? What is being done?  The scheduled sample for Atrazine in the Third Quarter of 2022 was not collected for monitoring purposes per KDHE regulations. Operating procedures are updated to ensure that required sampling is completed. We anticipate resolving the problem within thirty (30) days, as we are scheduled to collect a sample for Atrazine in the Fourth Quarter of 2022.  Once we collect the sample, we will return to a status of “in compliance” for this violation.  

For more information, please contact Name: JON QUINDAY at Phone:  785-483-6311

Or by Mail: 133 W 8TH ST, PO BOX 112, RUSSELL, KS  67665-0112

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by City of Russell, KS
