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.
