The water is flowing once again in Montrose.

Kevin Chartres the chief administrative office for the Village of Montrose, said the village has completed repairs after a water main break three weeks ago.

Although the Stage 3 water restrictions, which were enacted after the break, have been removed, the boil water advisory remains in effect.

Even though the water system is operating normally, new restrictions are in effect, including outdoor watering—excluding manual watering with cans or buckets—is prohibited between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Households are allowed to run one watering device at a time, including gardening hoses, underground systems and manual sprinklers. But underground sprinkling is only allowed between midnight to 4 a.m. and manual sprinkling is between 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. or 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The village recommends that turf is watered for no longer than 20 minutes in each zone and advises no watering at the end of every month.
