Jefferson City water service restored

– A water utility has restored service to a large area of Jefferson City after two main breaks left 5,500 customers with little or no water.
According to Missouri American Water officials, one 12-inch water main broke Tuesday.
The outage affected customers south of Stadium Boulevard in Jefferson City.
Brent Haas, Missouri American Water operations manager, said all customers were notified.
Jefferson City Public Schools spokeswoman Ryan Burns in an email wrote that South and Moreau Heights elementary schools are in the affected area and precautions have been taken to eliminate access to drinking water.
Wednesday is an early release day and the district will provide students bottled water until the end of the shortened day, she wrote.
Capital Region Medical Center was also without water due to the main break.
Helias Catholic school was also closed Wednesday because of the water main break, which affected one of its buildings.
The previous map, which was obtained from Missouri American Water, was incorrect.
