PEVELY, MO (KTVI) – Mayor John Knoblauch says that several water main breaks have led to a boil order for parts of Pevely. The order stands through the weekend. They say that the water is fine for bathing and cleaning but not for drinking.

The city posted this release to their website, “A boil order has been issued for those residents living south of Main Street (south of the railroad tracks) and east of I-55, including Pevely Heights Subdivision. Boil any water which is to be used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, etc until Monday February 3rd. Water is fine for bathing and cleaning.

It is recommended that if you have lost water pressure or water service in the last 24 hours, that you boil your water.

Please don’t forget to run the water to release air in the lines.”
