FORT HOOD, TEXAS — Water conservation restrictions have eased at Fort Hood following the repair of a broken line but a boil water order remains in effect as supplies are tested.

Physical training resumes Wednesday at the nationís largest Army post in Central Texas.

A work crew on Saturday accidentally punctured a water main serving Fort Hood and nearby communities. The line has been fixed but lab analysis continues on the postís water supplies to make sure required quality standards are met.

Fort Hood, with about 40,000 active duty personnel, has limited outdoor watering until tanks and regular supplies are fully replenished.
