Boil Order, Conservation Order Lifted
St. Peters and St. Charles Water Situation Back to Normal
September 16, 2013
Water users in the Cities of St. Peters and St. Charles are being advised that they can resume normal use of water in those cities. Laboratory test results have just been received and indicate the water is safe for consumption in the Cities of St. Peters and St. Charles, and water storage levels in the Cities’ water systems have also been replenished.
Crews from both cities worked together for over 40 consecutive hours this weekend making repairs to a major water main break on the line that carries water to their systems from the City of St. Louis. The break was discovered late Friday afternoon.
Water can now be used normally. According to City water officials, you do not need to “flush” your water lines. In addition, it is suggested that if you have an icemaker in your refrigerator, you run one or two cycles of ice and discard them before consuming ice from your icemaker.
