The City of Wentzville has announced that the mandatory water conservation order that has been in effect in the city will be lifted at 9 p.m. this evening.
Public Water Supply District #2 posted the following on their website:
6:45 pm, June 29, 2017: Passing water samples have been received. Once all valves have been opened and normal pressures and flows have been restored within the system, the water conservation will be lifted. This is expected to occur early tomorrow morning, June 30, 2017. Please continue to conserve water until the order is listed. Thank you for your patience.
The water district appears to be waiting until morning to lift the conservation order for its own customers. A Wentzville city staffer confirmed to 70 West Sentinel that the city was lifting the conservation order on its customers at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The conservation order began Monday when a leak was discovered in a 36-inch pipe that brings water from St. Louis.
