FAIRMOUNT, N.D. (AP) - Repair work is underway on the storm-damaged water tower in the southeastern North Dakota community of Fairmount.

The top of the tower was blown to one side by strong winds that accompanied a thunderstorm a week ago, and officials put water restrictions in place. State health officials lifted a boil order on Friday but residents are still being asked to conserve water.

The Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1Juo3uu ) that crews began repairing the water tower on Saturday. The work is being done by companies out of Fargo and Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Officials expect the work to take about 2 ½ weeks.

About 400 people live in Fairmount.
