Little River's Water Flow Drops Considerably

Blount County (WVLT) -- This weekend, two Blount County cities enjoyed a much needed break from mandatory water restrictions, but it looks like it might only be temporary for Alcoa and Maryville.

Last weeks rains raised the Little River's water flow level to 140 cubic feet per-second.

It has fallen considerably since then, now flowing at a rate of 41 cubic feet per-second.

A new pipeline should start pumping this week, but it still may not be enough to keep the restrictions away.
