CLEAR LAKE, S.D. (AP) - Crews have fixed a water main break that prompted a conservation order in the eastern South Dakota town of Clear Lake.

The main broke early Tuesday, and some homes were without water. Crews worked through the day to fix the problem. KSFY-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1aHi2jh ) that repairs wrapped up Tuesday night.

City Superintendent Don Ebbers says the town’s 1,300 residents still should boil their water before using it until quality testing is done, likely by Wednesday night.

The Wal-Mart store in Watertown donated bottle water to the town on Tuesday. Emergency crews distributed it to a hospital and nursing homes.
