ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — A boil advisory issued for part of south St. Louis County over the weekend has been lifted.

Missouri American Water said around 3,600 customers were affected in the following area: Watson Road from Cheshire Lane to south Laclede Station Road, Heede Road to south on McKenzie Road to Dorisann Court over to Tesson Ferry Road and south to Puttington Drive and up to Grant Road. 

In a press release, Missouri American Water said the boil order was lifted after tests confirmed the water was safe for consumption.

The advisory was issued as a precautionary measure after the water system pressure dropped due to a 20-inch main break.

The press release said customers who have signed up to receive emergency notifications will receive a phone call providing information about the lift.
