Drought Like Weather Could Prompt Mandatory Water Restrictions

This week one Eastern Carolina Community will learn if they will be under mandatory water restrictions.

Water levels are so low in the City of Rocky Mount the boat ramp on Bend of The River Road was closed. The Water Resources Director says he thinks the city will be under mandatory restrictions this week..which will mean a lot of cutbacks. The city has been under voluntary water restrictions since July 4th.

The drought like weather and falling water levels are a problem facing our entire state, in Mecklenburg County near Charlotte two boat ramps on Lake Wylie were closed as the lake is now about two feet below its targeted level.
