Water restrictions delayed in Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - All eyes will be on the James River this weekend.

The city's keeping a close eye on the forecast, hoping for more rain, especially to the west of us.

City leaders were considering voluntary water restrictions this week, but held off on in-acting them when water levels on the James began to rise slightly.

A spokesperson for the Department of Public Utilities said today they will revisit the issue on Monday.
