Eyewitness News schooled Saturday it could be days before new H2O restrictions are carried in Union County.
A lethal pile-up on a Catawba River Bridge Friday caused fuel to trickle into a river.
Brian Stokes crossed a centerline in a Honda and strike a logging lorry conduct on. He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where he after died, officials said.
Fuel from a tanker lorry leaked upstream from a Catawba H2O diagnosis plant, causing leaders to take action.

“We have a fountainhead that’s good for 3 to 5 days that we’ll run off and we’ll have H2O as usual,” Helms said. “If it goes past that we’ll have to make adjustments.”
