St. Paul Regional Water Services has lifted a “boil water advisory” for 1,900 customers within a 3-square-mile area by the Maplewood/St. Paul border.

The precautionary advisory was issued Monday afternoon following a power outage at the Beebe Road pump station in Maplewood. Water customers were asked to boil water for three minutes before using it for drinking, brushing teeth or washing dishes.

Since that time, lab tests have revealed that the drinking water remains safe for consumption, according to a written statement issued by the water utility around 11 a.m. Tuesday. Testing shows no contamination and normal water pressure has returned.

Customers can resume normal water usage. Officials said they consulted with the Minnesota Department of Health before lifting the advisory.
