The City of Natoma in Osborne County declared a local state of disaster due to a boil water advisory issued by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment on June 27.  KDHE officials issued the advisory because of a line break resulting in a loss of pressure in the system.

Due to the situation in Natoma, six pallets of the water that were delivered to Norton on June 23, will be transported by the Kansas National Guard from Norton to Natoma. 

The bottled water was donated by Harvesters in Kansas City, Missouri, and Topeka, and portions remains unused from the recent water emergency in Norton. 

The Kansas Department of Transportation is assisting with getting the water loaded on the truck for transport.  The water will be transported to Natoma today by the 997th Brigade Support Battalion.
