KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

On Saturday, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment said that the boil water advisory issued on Thursday for Edwardsville, Lake of the Forest, and southwestern Kansas City, Kansas has now been canceled. 

The advisory was issued because there was a loss of pressure, which can lead to bacterial contamination and a loss of chlorine residuals. The loss in pressure was caused by a water main break near 86th Street and Interstate 70.

The 2,700 people affected live in the area generally bounded by I-70 and Tauromee Avenue to the north, 72nd Street on the east, the Kansas River to the south, and 118th Street to the west. See the picture in this article to see where the boundaries were.

The advisory remained in effect until KDHE deemed the risk of contamination "resolved."

Customers with questions were told to BPU Customer Service at 913-573-9190.
