(KMOV.com) – A boil order and a mandatory water conservation was lifted in St. Charles and St. Peters Monday morning, a day after crews repaired a broken water main pipe that led to both cities.
St. Peters Utilities director Bill Malach told said the broken pipe has been repaired and the order was lifted around 8 a.m. after the pipe was checked and the water system sampled. Officials said lab tests indicated the water was safe for consumption and water storage levels were replenished in both cities’ water systems.
The water main break occurred on the main line from St. Louis that provides water to the cities of St. Charles and St. Peters. Officials said the broken pipe was located behind a home off of Jung Station Road.
Officials said crews from both cities worked together for more than 40 consecutive hours over the weekend to repair the break.
Authorities said water can now be used normally and residents do not have to flush their water lines.
