Drought watch for Upper James River basin lifted

Wednesday - 4/17/2013, 2:11pm  ET

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Upper James River basin is no longer under a drought watch.

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality said Wednesday that it has lifted the advisory.

The move follows near-normal early spring precipitation that raised ground water and reservoir levels and increased stream flows.
