CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The city of Clarksville has fully rolled back water restrictions as the work to repair a water main leak has been completed. Clarksville Gas & Water said residents may return to normal water usage.

A 30-inch water transmission line ruptured earlier this week, prompting emergency repairs and water restrictions for residents. City leaders told NewsChannel 5 that a pipe burst at a joint. Clarksville Gas & Water said the repair was completed on Tuesday night.

Early Wednesday morning, residents were asked to voluntarily conserve water to help restore the supply. This request was lifted by Wednesday afternoon.
