Minot residents under water restrictions until water main repair
MINOT—Minot is now under a mandatory water ration after a system malfunction.
The main 12-million gallon per day treatment basin can't be used until it's repaired.
The backup basin will be used for now, but can only produce 6-million gallons per day and the current water usage is up to 9 million gallons per day.
Until the main basin is fixed people in the area should not water their lawns, get car washes, or use excessive amounts of water.
