SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Nov. 26, 2022) -- City of Saint Robert, Missouri officials announced Saturday evening that they issued a boil advisory following a water main break earlier in the day.
The boil advisory covers residences and businesses on all of Eastlawn Avenue and all of Kathy Lane, Bell Drive, April Drive, Charlotte Circle, Shara Drive, Phoenix Avenue, Dogood Circle, Woodland Lane, Meadow Lane and Kale Court, then from the intersection of Eastlawn and Marshall Drive going north of Marshall Drive to 200 Marshall Drive (Hidden Valley Plaza) and all of Liberty Parkway, Vickie Lynn Lane and Bruce Drive, as well as all of the Woodridge Subdivision, which includes Ridgeview Drive, Cedar Court, Oak Court, Walnut Court, Ash Court, Locust Court, and Sycamore Drive.
City officials noted that this is only a boil advisory and is **NOT** a boil order. As noted by the city, advisories are issued "as a precautionary measure since the water pressure in the main drops below 20 PSI during work and contaminants can possibly get in to the main. The likelihood of this happening is slim, but the city must issue an advisory due to DNR standards. This boil advisory will remain in effect until DNR sample results are returned to our office, which will take 3-5 business days. Customers in this area are advised to boil tap water for at least 3 minutes before consumption or use bottled water. Businesses regulated by the Department of Health and Senior Services should follow applicable department regulations. Customers will be notified when testing is complete and they can resume using their normal water supply."
Those who would like more information may call the St. Robert Public Works Department at (573) 451-2000 Ext. 1144.
Restaurants and food service establishments that need to follow the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services regulations should call (573) 736-2217, the Pulaski County Health Center, for further information.
