ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A water advisory has been issued in West St. Paul, urging residents to refrain from drinking the tap water.

Electrical outages during Tuesday night’s storm resulted in low pressure at the West St. Paul pump station at Bidwell Street and Logan Avenue.

A map shows the area affected by the water advisory.

Residents are asked to use bottled water until further notice for drinking, making ice, brushing your teeth, washing dishes and food preparation.

With low — or no — water pressure, it’s easier for harmful bacteria to enter the water system.
