Emergency water plan stalls

By Diandra Spicak

Lexington and Rockbridge County have yet to decide on a plan to supply water in an emergency. This means that city and county residents who get their water from the Maury River could be left high and dry during a water crisis. Right now, if an emergency occurred, residents would be asked to conserve water and, depending on the situation, a boil water notice could be issued. Water could also be trucked in. The city and the county are expected to resume discussions soon.
