Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Emergency water restrictions are going in effect for Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie, Petersburg and Prince George.

They will take effect in Chesterfield starting tomorrow.

The changes mean you need to reduce the amount of water you're using immediately!

You can not water your lawn, garden or fill up a swimming pool.

You also can't wash your car at your home.
