St. Louis lifts boil water advisory after clean test results

A loss of power at a water treatment plan caused low water pressure in parts of the service area.

ST. LOUIS — The City of St. Louis Water Division on Wednesday lifted the precautionary boil advisory in place for parts of its service area. The advisory was issued due to a loss of power supply at its Chain of Rocks Water Treatment Plant.

The advisory was lifted after water sample testing came back clean, according to a city spokesperson.

According to the water division, the loss of power caused low water pressure for parts of north and south St. Louis. The areas impacted were:

  • Area 1: Hamilton Heights, Kingshighway West and Wells-Goodfellow.
  • Area 2: Hi-Pointe, Clayton-Tamm, Cheltenham and Kings Oak; Franz Park, The Hill and Southwest Garden; Ellendale, Clifton Heights and North Hampton; and Tower Grove South, South Grand and Gravois Park.

These neighborhoods are the highest elevations in the service area.

The boil water advisory was issued out of caution. The water division said it has not detected any contamination in the water supply.
