UPDATE 3/8/19 - 11am

The City of Fenton water system for the area of South Fenway Avenue has passed all bacteriological sampling and the water has been determined to meet state drinking water standards. The City says there is still surface work to finish but all work to the water main has been completed and they do not anticipate any further disruptions of service for the area.

A water main break has resulted in a boil water advisory being issued for some businesses in Fenton.

Five businesses served by Fenton city water on South Fenway Avenue are impacted following a water main valve break that was discovered this afternoon. City crews have made the necessary repairs but in the process, had to depressurize the system. Businesses located between 250 S. Fenway and 555 South Fenway are impacted and are being advised to boil drinking or cooking water for at least the next 48 hours or until test results come back clean for contamination. Officials say all impacted businesses have been notified and stress that the boil water advisory does not affect any other areas of the community. The City will advise when the boil water order has been lifted.
