Missouri American Water says that people living in Bel-Nor, Bel-Ridge, Breckenridge Hills, Charlack, Hanley Hills, Overland, St. John, Sycamore Hills, Vinita Park, Vinita Terrace, and Woodson Terrace should boil for three minutes before using. The tap water is okay for washing, bathing, and other non-consumable uses.
