KENESAW, Neb. (KSNB) - Residents of the Village of Kenesaw will no longer have to boil their water. The boil notice is now over.

Adams County Emergency Manager Ron Pughes said two independent water tests have come back from the State of Nebraska and indicate that the water is safe for consumption without the need to boil.

The notice went into effect on Sunday following a water main break. Water was made available by the village for residents to get through the notice.

While all this is happening, Kenesaw Public Schools remained open.

School officials said they have made a couple of adjustments according to the advisory.

“They started immediately putting chlorine into the water supply, and the chlorine would kill any bacteria if there was any in there, and really it’s more of a precautionary measure if anything,” said Rick Masters, Superintendent of Kenesaw Public Schools. “Just to make sure that the water is safe..”

The Village of Kenesaw would like to thank the community for their patience and appreciates the assistance they have received.
