I would hope that any plan to convey water to other municipalities would include strict stipulations concerning conservation by the recipients.

My plan for solving the Asheville/Buncombe water fight includes incentives for conservation county-wide. Water shortages are global and the current drought in our region is a harbinger of more to come. We should assess all county planning in light of probable future water resources.

Cecil, you're not from around here and you believe in government control of private wells.

Tell the truth like a man and be prepared to run like heck when everyone finds out what you ARE really about.

Water shortages are not 'global'. All the water that was ever on the planet is STILL on the planet. It didn't GO anywhere.

But 'the sky is falling' goddess-worshipping socialists are going to always worry about their eternal security and how they can control everyone else's resources to feel better about the short-term.

And a whole bunch of them moved here and have to take, take, take from US to feel 'secure'.

And Mr. Bothwell, exactly how much water do YOU think each of us should be rationed per day? And exactly HOW soon do you want to put the meters on?

The current Mars Hill reservoir can now be sold or given to the Wolf Ridge resort and skislope. No doubt this was one of those 5 or 10-year plans that's now coming together so sweetly and the taxpayers are funding it.

Ahhh. With the municipal bond market all but _dead_, we may not be able to get money to fix our own system. Do not use current funds to extend system!!!!!! It may not be possible to get funds in the future. America may be teetering on the brink of Depression, and this is no exaggeration.
