ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A boil order has been issued for parts of Godfrey, Elsah, Joywood, and Principia, Ill. Illinois American Water says there was a temporary loss in water pressure.

The utility says people living in the area should bring their water to a rolling boil for 5 minutes before drinking or cooking. The water is OK for bathing and washing.

Any time water pressure drops below 20 pounds per square inch in any part of a community’s distribution system, a boil water order must be issued as a precaution to protect customers.
