St. Paul water safe for use after water main break

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Residents in St. Paul have been given the all-clear to resume using water as normal after a weekend water main break.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (http://bit.ly/12haitN) the boil water advisory was lifted Sunday morning after St. Paul Regional Water Services received confirmation that there are no more contaminants in the water.

The water main has been repaired and service is expected to resume Sunday.

The 20-inch, 61-year-old main broke late Friday, sending an estimated 1.75 million gallons of water through parts of downtown.

Water service for many was affected. The exact number is unknown, but many homes and businesses had water supply and water pressure issues.
