For many of us, it was a sight to see.
For the first time in months, a steady rain fell throughout our region.
And probably no one is happier to see the rain than Roanoke city's Director of Utilities.

But the best chance may not be enough.
The water level here at Carvins Cove is dropping about a tenth of a foot a day and is currently more than 23 feet below the spillway.
The rain this weekend helps but it may do very little to replenish the city's water supply.
[SOT 1:32:00]
[IN Q=The ground has been so]

And the point where mandatory water restrictions kick in is getting closer.
The city will enact those restrictions once the cove reaches 26 feet below the spillway.
At the rate we're going, that level could be reached by the end of the month.
[SOT 1:50:14]
[IN Q=Many have wondered]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: MANY HAVE WONDERED JUST EXACTLY HOW MUCH WILL THE CRYSTAL SPRING TREATMENT ALLEVIATE THE PROBLEM AND EXACTLY WHEN IT WILL BE FINISHED.
