That's because in addition to its main supply at the Pedlar Reservoir, the city also can draw water from the James River.

They plan to start drawing from the James sooner rather than later.

Roanoke fiber optic cable maker, Optical Cable, says it will ask shareholders to approve a measure aimed at keeping the company's stock from being delisted.
Its board of directors scheduled a special meeting for July 30th. At that time it will ask shareholders to authorize a reverse stock split. If that goes through, shareholders would wind up with one share of common stock for every EIGHT shares they now own. However, the value of each share SHOULD be greater.
Nasdaq notified Optical Cable earlier this year that it faces delisting from the National Market if its stock price stays below a dollar per share.
Meanwhile a Wall Street rally fizzled in the second half of the session as stocks resumed their sell-off.
Analysts say investors are so nervous about the markets and corporate profits that they look to sell on any rally. Alexis Christoforous has more.
