Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Missouri American Water is encouraging customers in south St. Louis County to conserve water over the next couple of days.

The water company said some customers may experience lower than normal water pressure due to the recent flooding along the Meramec River.

The affected areas are: Fenton, Oakland, Marlborough, Crestwood, Grantwood Village, Affton, Wilbur Park, Green Park, Valley Park, Mehlville, Lemay, Webster Groves, Shrewsbury, MacKenzie, Sunset Hills, Sappington and Lakeshire.

According to Missouri America Water, customers in the affected areas can conserve water by repairing any faucet and toilet leaks, make sure dishwasher is full before running it, match water level to size of the laundry load, and consider taking shorter showers.

The quality of the drinking water is still good, and meets, or surpasses, all state and federal regulations, the company stated in a press release.
