Sanitary service was restored when the Minnesota River dropped to the 17-foot level, according to Steve Jones, Montevideo city manager. He said residents were being asked to limit water use for a few days.

The sewer had been turned off April 5.

The Minnesota River is continuing to slowly drop in both Montevideo and Granite Falls, but still remains above flood stage in both communities.
