WATERLOO (KWWL)--People in Ames can start using small amounts of water Saturday.

But it's still not safe to drink without boiling it first.

Officials lifted the restriction Saturday afternoon.

Residents can now use small amounts of water for showering or flushing toilets.

Flooding forced the city to shut down its water system Wednesday.

The flood broke the city's water mains.
