Water levels above mandatory restriction line

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Water levels at Lake Chesdin have made drastic changes in just the past few days.

The Appomattox River Authority says the levels are getting close to the top of the dam.

The levels are well over the emergency restriction line and over the mandatory restriction line.

That means officials could get together pretty soon to discuss the restrictions in place.

But just a reminder - no localities have had any change in their water restrictions so far.

So Chesterfield, Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie and Prince George are all still under emergency restrictions.
