    Water service is running at 60 percent capacity in Weatherford after a busted pipline interrupted the flow.

    Officials said Thursday that with the improved services, restrictions have been lowered.

    Residents of the city of nearly 28,000, located 25 miles west of Fort Worth, can fill their pools and water their lawns on designated days.

    Thursday, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said water no longer requires boiling.

    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.

    Weatherford College which had been closed during the pipeline break also reopened on Wednesday.
