A boil water advisory has been lifted for St. Joseph.

Missouri American Water has lifted its precautionary boil water advisory issued Friday, earlier than expected. Missouri American reports water samples have confirmed the water is safe for consumption. There is no need to boil water prior to consumption.

Missouri American has issued a boil advisory for the entire St. Joseph area Friday due to slightly elevated turbidity levels. The chlorine, which is the disinfectant, remained at the appropriate level. During the boil advisory customers might have noticed their water was cloudy.

Missouri American first estimated the boil advisory would be in place for approximately 48 hours.
