League of Women Voters forum on Asheville’s water system Feb 13th

The purpose of the forum is to provide the public with reliable, factual information about the water system, its history, options for its future, and the overall legislative process that is guiding its status. The North Carolina legislature has appointed a study committee that is considering future options for the system, chaired by Rep. Tim Moffitt, who represents part of southern Buncombe County.
Panelists will include Esther Manheimer, the Asheville City Council representative to the legislative study committee; State Rep. and former Flat Rock town councilman Chuck McGrady; and Dr. Gene Rainey, the chair of the Buncombe County Commission when the Regional Water Authority was established in 1994. The panel will also include representation from the Legislative committee and experts from the Asheville Water Department and the Metropolitan Sewerage District, who will be able to provide technical expertise.
