ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - The precautionary boil order advisory has been lifted in the City of St. Louis.

Part of the St. Louis Hills neighborhood has under the advisory following a 12 inch water main break at Jamieson and Westway.

Before the break was repaired, residents lost water pressure, prompting the advisory. Bacteria tests came back Tuesday and showed water in the area is safe to drink.

Maggie Crane, communications director for Mayor Francis Slay, says the 21 homes that were without water on Jamieson near the break should continue to boil their water as a precaution.

Tests are expected to be back by mid-afternoon to determine whether the precautionary boil advisory will be lifted for those 21 homes.  The water division will hang door placards on those homes to alert residents to the results.

Crews will continue to make repairs to the broken main through Friday.
