Water is back for southwest Virginia residents

APPALACHIA, Va. - Water woes are over for the town of Appalachia.

Town Manager Fred Luntsford tells us everyone can turn their water back on now. 

At one point, around 80 households had to turn water off because their old pipes could not handle normal water pressure associated with the new water system.

The town replaced pipes and valves, some of which were about 100 years old.
