According to KTVI Fox 2, Missouri American Water has issued a precautionary boil order for parts of north St. Louis County. The order was issued due to a 36-inch water main break that caused water pressure to drop.
The company expects to have the water main repaired soon.
Water quality testing will be done for 48-hours after the main is repaired to ensure the water is clean of contaminates.
Residents are being asked to boil water to be used for cooking and drinking for 3 minutes.
The areas affected are: Maryland Heights, Bridgeton, Unincorporated St. Louis County, Overland, Vinita Park, Normandy, Charlack, Hanley Hills, Pagedale, Greendale, Bellerieve, Pasadena Hills, Berkely, Woodson Terrace, Edmunson, Breckenridge Hill, St. Ann.
