A note for residents in parts of Pevely.

 

Officials issued a boil order through the weekend. Water is fine for bathing and cleaning, but should not be used for drinking.

 

The city's website states: “A boil order has been issued for those residents living south of Main Street (south of the railroad tracks) and east of I-55, including Pevely Heights Subdivision. Boil any water which is to be used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, etc until Monday February 3rd."

 

More information is available at the city's website.

   Students in the Normandy School District are getting an unexpected three-day weekend thanks to a water main that burst near the UMSL campus Thursday.  

   The main has been repaired, but a boil order is in effect for about 2,200 Missouri American water customers.  That includes parts of Bel Ridge, Belle Rive, Bel Nor, Normandy and St. John.  

   As a result, all schools in the Normandy School District will be closed Friday.

   Other schools in the affected area are open, but school leaders are asking students to bring a bottle of drinking water with them. 

   The UMSL campus had shut down on Thursday because of the break, canceling day and evening classes. University officials say even though they are still under a boil order, classes will resume Friday morning.  

   Missouri American officials say they hope to life the boil order Friday afternoon.

St. Charles and St. Peter's boil order lifted

The boil and water conservation order for St. Charles and St. Peters residents has been lifted this morning.  A water main break in a secondary supply line from St. Louis was discovered on Friday.  It was repaired, but the boil and conservation order remained in effect until the water could be tested and the water pressure regulated. More than 120-thousand customers in eastern and central St. Charles County were affected. Missouri American Water customers were not affected.

And some good news for residents in one St. Louis neighborhood.

The precautionary boil order has been lifted. Water tests show no signs of bacteria in the lines and officials say water is safe to drink.

However, it is not all good news--21 homes along Jamieson Avenue still do not have water. Service is expected to be restored by 8 PM, but those residents should continue to boil their water. Water Division crews have placed placards on the doors of homes where the boil order continues.

The area included in the original boil order was: South of Arsenal, West of Hampton, North of Eichelberger, and East of the River Des Peres.

   A broken water main is forcing some south city residents to boil their water.  

   The city of St. Louis has issued a boil order while crews finish repairs to a 12-inch water main at Jamieson and Westway Road, near Francis Park.  The boil order affects the southwestern part of the city, including those south of Arsenal, west of Hampton, north of Eichelberger and east of River Des Peres.  

   Residents are instructed to boil water for three minutes before drinking it or using it in cooking.  If water sample tests due back Tuesday afternoon are clear, the boil order could be lifted at that time.  

   Because of the boil order, all three campuses of  the Word of Life Lutheran School and Step Ahead Childcare Academy in Southwest St. Louis will be closed Tuesday.
