Residents in the city of Roanoke could face mandatory water conservation, beginning next month.
The city's been unable to use its second- largest water supply, Crystal Spring, because of a 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.
