Water restriction decision expected Wednesday

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Residents in Chesterfield and in and around the tri-cities may soon get a break Wednesday when it comes to how they use their water.

There's a good chance that emergency water restrictions will go away in Chesterfield, Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie and Prince George.

The Appomattox River Water Authority Board is meeting at 9:30 a.m.

They're expected to lower the restrictions to mandatory. We'll let you know about that decision when it's official.

Tuesday, voluntary restrictions were lifted for Richmond, Henrico, Hanover and Goochland.
