SALEM—A burst water pipe left Salem residents under a water use restriction for more than 24 hours Thursday and Friday. Between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Thursday morning, a water pipe broke at the city's water treatment plant, Salem Finance Officer Lori Heumiller said Friday, cutting the city's water production in half. Repairs took longer than officials expected, Heumiller said, as welds needed to be done to support the replacement piping.
