Boil Water Advisory Rescinded for City of Girard in Crawford Co.
TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has rescinded a boil water advisory for the City of Girard public water supply located in Crawford County. The advisory was issued because of a water line break resulting in a loss of pressure. Inadequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination.
Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it’s the supplier or KDHE that announces a boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.
Laboratory testing samples collected from the City of Girard public water supply indicate no evidence of contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.

KDHE’s mission is to protect and improve the health and environment of all Kansans.

By the Spring of 2017, the historic downtown square in Girard will have a fresh look featuring new sidewalks, curbing, and decorative light poles and banners. The updates at the heart of our city will extend from the downtown streetscape to an improved inter- section at the K7 and K47 interchange.
The City of Girard is investing approximately one million dollars in matching funds for the two projects totaling $2.7 million. Project plans have been approved by the Kansas Department of Transportation and will be bid in 2016. With a substantial investment of taxpayer resources and project timelines established, City and County officials, business and property owners, and community leaders are challenged to coordinate efforts to beautify our downtown square by June 2017.

Notice to All Water Customers and Plumbing Contractors:
The City of Girard has started a new water project funded by a KDHE loan that will provide new water storage towers for the city and provide for the removal of the old ones. New electronically read water meters will allow for more accurately read meters as well as real-time information on water leaks and water usage in the future.
One concern that the city wants everyone to be aware of is when the new towers come on-line we expect the water pressure to be better than before and in that regard, some older lines, both public and private, may develop leaks. Everyone, as in the past, should check occasionally for leaky pipes and faucets and continue to monitor after the new towers are built and in operation. The expected time frame for the new towers is approximately June or July of 2015.
