Water Main Break Could Result in Warmer Building Temperatures Downtown

A water main break at 13th and Convention streets has resulted in a drop in water pressure in cooling towers in some downtown buildings.

July 21, 2017 | 2 min reading time

The loss in pressure will mean higher temperatures in many downtown buildings.

The City of St. Louis Water Division has been on the scene since earlyFriday morning working to restore water pressure to the affected buildings.

The Water Division is in the process of adjusting pressure in other parts of the City's network of water pipes to compensate for the main break.

The system is expected to be stabilized within hours.
