JEFFERSON CITY - A precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for Missouri American Water customers in Jefferson City after a contractor broke a 12-inch water main on Missouri Boulevard between Bolivar and Highway 50.

The advisory affects approximately 8,000 customers in Jefferson City. Customers can visit a website to enter an address and confirm whether it is within the affected area.
Customers in the advisory area should bring their water to a rolling boil for three minutes before using it to drink or cook. Tap water is safe for bathing and washing clothes.
