St. Paul Regional Water Services lifts Maplewood ‘boil water’ advisory

A “boil water alert” for 1,900 customers inside a 3-square-mile region along the Maplewood/St. Paul boundary has been canceled by St. Paul Regional Water Services.

An electrical failure at the Beebe Road pump station in Maplewood prompted the release of the precautionary alert on Monday afternoon. Customers of water were instructed to boil the water for three minutes before using it for drinking, tooth brushing, or dishwashing.

According to a written statement released by the water company at 11 a.m. Tuesday, lab tests conducted since that time have shown that the drinking water is still safe for consumption. Testing has revealed no pollution, and the water pressure is back to normal.

Customers may start using water normally again. Before removing the advice, officials claimed to have spoken with the Minnesota Department of Health.
