St. Paul City Residents Advised to Take Precautions in Case of Water System Power Loss.

The National Weather Service is forecasting the area’s first big winter storm beginning Sunday afternoon and lasting through Monday night, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds. The St. Paul City water system can lose pressure due to power loss, and residents are advised to store a small supply of water for drinking and toilet use.  City staff will monitor the system during the storm and taking an appropriate response.

If the system loses pressure, a boil water advisory may be issued.  During an incident, water system updates and information can be obtained by calling 503-633-BOIL.
