Appalachia residents still without water

APPALACHIA, Va. - Dozens of homeowners in Appalachia are still without water.

According to the Appalachia City Manager, crews were working on a new water system that would raise the water pressure to a normal level.  When the new system was finished, older pipes couldn't handle the increase in pressure causing problems for homeowners.

The city is using grant money to add pressure reducing valves for the more than 80 homes affected.  Repairs should be finished by the end of the week.
