ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The heat have is ravaging the St. Louis water system.  There were more than a half-dozen active water main breaks at one point Saturday; just in the city.  The biggest main to blow, made an intersection near downtown look like a small war zone.

Repair work here may have to wait a day or two because of the the back-log of line breaks on a holiday weekend.
