Lynchburg officials say they don't see a need to implement any kind of water restrictions either.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Lynchburg;]


That's because in addition to its main supply at the Pedlar Reservoir, the city can also draw water from the James River.
Authorities say the reservoir is about 70 inches below the spillway and dropping fast.. but the James is a reliable backup even in the driest of times.
They plan to start drawing from the James sooner rather than later.
