View a map of the impacted area for potential high lead levels in City water, limited to the Ridgeview South neighborhood in Olathe.

All potentially impacted customers have been notified.
Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Olathe has notified all potentially impacted customers that field testing showed the potential for high levels of lead in a portion of one Olathe neighborhood, Ridgeview South.  Though field testing from the meter is not considered an accurate barometer for lead, the City is erring on the side of caution. 

There are no water quality concerns outside that specific area, and the City continues to meet or exceed all state and federal clean water standards.
