Water service is running at 60 percent capacity in Weatherford after a busted pipeline interrupted the flow.
Officials said Thursday that with the improved services, restrictions have been lowered. Residents of the city of nearly 28,000, can fill their pools and water their lawns on designated days, but they still have to boil their water for drinking.
Utility authorities continue working toward a permanent solution to the broken pipeline, which was discovered early Monday.
Weatherford has spent over $70,000 distributing more than 500,000 bottles of water to residents over the past few days.
