Another water main break is impacting St. Joseph residents. 

According to an alert issued by the St. Joseph Police Department Sunday night Center and MO American Water is aware of a water main break causing some residents to have low water pressure, discolored water, or without water. Missouri American Water has issued a boil advisory for the area due to the drop in water pressure from the break. According to the water company residents should bring water to a rolling boil for three minutes before using it for drinking or cooking. Tap water is okay for washing and bathing. The boil advisory will be in effect until tests confirm that the water is safe to drink. 

It’s the second break in less than a week’s time that has impacted area residents. 

The St. Joseph School District said classes will not be disrupted Monday by the water main break. The district said water bottles will be delivered to students at schools impacted by the boil advisory. 

As we learn more we will update this post.
