Boil water order for Kirkwood residents

By KWMU

St. Louis, MO – The 10,000 or so people who live in Kirkwood who get their water from the city should boil their water until further notice.

That's because a water main broke Sunday and the city-run utility lost almost all of its water in the system.

Even as water pressure returns, the city says residents should boil any water for three minutes before they cook with it or drink to be sure bacteria are killed.
