Boil water advisory lifted for Jefferson City

A boil water advisory for Missouri's capital city has been lifted.

Missouri American Water said Wednesday evening that customers no longer need to boil before drinking or cooking. The company has about 10,000 customers in Jefferson City.

The boil water advisory was issued after a 6-inch main broke in Jefferson City on Tuesday morning, cutting off water and leaving others with low water pressure. Repairs were completed the same day.

The company says it collected water samples and completed several water quality tests. Missouri American Water says water meets all federal standards. Customers are to receive automated phone calls Thursday notifying them that the boil advisory has been lifted.
