ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A precautionary boil order has been lifted by the St. Louis City Water Division after a massive water main break downtown.
The boil order was issued Tuesday when the water pressure fell below acceptable levels. The areas included in the boil order stretched from Natural Bridge to Chouteau and east of Jefferson.
Water has been restored to the area and the boil order was issued out of an abundance of caution. The results of the tests performed by the St. Louis City Water Division were favorable.
The City Water Division will issue a boil water advisory when there is a concern that a problem with drinking water may exist but has not yet been confirmed. The order is usually limited to drinking water and may not include water used for bathing.
