ARCO, Idaho -

Water is back on in Arco, and it's drinkable.

Residents were forced to scale back on water use Thursday when the motor on the city's only working well broke down.

Although the pump motor was fixed by Friday, the city had urged residents to boil their water before drinking it as it had not yet been tested. According to the tests, the water is safe for drinking, city officials said Monday.
