As early as Mid-February, there could be mandatory water restrictions put in place for Roanoke residents.
The city's been unable to use its second- largest water supply, Crystal Spring, because of the potentially deadly bacteria--fecal coliform.
Roanoke officials say they'd expected the state to allow them to re- open in the spring, but the state health department says Crystal Spring still poses a legitimate health risk.
