(END SOT) << For anyone in Amherst who was


wondering whether water restrictions
were still in effect, the answer could
be found in the fountain in the town's
traffic circle ... bubbling with life
-- and water -- once again.


Several days of sustained rain have
brought the Buffalo River back to its


normal level ... and after four weeks
of mandatory conservation, the town
feels good about its situation.


Due west of Amherst, it's the same
story ... the Pedlar Reservoir, which
serves as the city of Lynchburg's main
source of water, is up more than four
feet over last week ... and it
continues to rise.


SOT SOT FULL 18:40:22


IN Q=We feel very TIM MITCHELL/LYNCHBURG UTILITIES


DIRECTOR: WE FEEL VERY GOOD ABOUT THE
SITUATION NOW. AFTER SEVERAL DAYS OF
STEADY RAIN, THE RESERVOIR LEVEL IS
ABOUT FIFTY INCHES HIGHER THAN IT WAS
THIS TIME LAST WEEK, AND IT'S STILL
RISING. RIGHT NOW, WE'RE ABOUT 111
INCHES ABOVE THE SPILLWAY. TYPICALLY
ANYTHING OVER 130 INCHES, WE'RE USING
100 PERCENT WATER FROM THE RESERVOIR.


RUN16 (END SOT)


OUT Q=from the reservoir. Because Lynchburg can draw up to


100 percent of its water from the James
River if need be, the water situation
there has not been as dire ... although
residents were asked earlier this month
to use water wisely.


Mitchell says that's good advice
any time of year.

IN Q=We know that MITCHELL: WE KNOW THAT THE GROUND WATER


LEVELS ARE STILL RELATIVELY LOW
COMPARED TO WHERE THEY TYPICALLY ARE

pressure will keep the weather tranquil
through the week, with clear skies both
night and day. This week mean a fairly
large temperature swing with chilly
mornings and comfortable afternoons.
Temperatures will moderate a bit by
midweek as winds come in from the
south. Several fronts will try to make
a run at us, with little success.
Tropical Storm Noel formed in the
Central Caribbean Sea over the weekend.
Most of the rain will stay off the east
