The Appomattox River Water Authority wants localities that it serves to implement mandatory water restrictions because of drought conditions.
"The Progress-Index" reports that Lake Chesdin's level has fallen to the equivalent of 200 days of usage at the current rate.
Executive Director James C. Dawson tells the newspaper that the authority doesn't have the power to enforce mandatory restrictions. Dawson says that's up to the local governments, which usually act promptly.
The authority provides water to residents in Petersburg, Colonial Heights and portions of Chesterfield, Dinwiddie and Prince George counties.
