HUMBOLDT, Kan. (AP) – Residents of a southeast Kansas town are able to once again use the city water after a water plant that was shut down reopened.

Humboldt officials urged residents on Thursday to conserve water because of a chemical spill in the Neosho River.

State health officials gave the all-clear and residents were told they could go back to regular water use after 3 p.m. Friday.

The chemicals were spilled during a fire at Mid-West Fertilizer in Iola.
