The Asheville Downtown Association has released a video of the presentation Joe Minicozzi gave at the Feb. 20 Mountain Voices Alliance water system forum. The presentation lasts 6 minutes and 19 seconds. Topics include differential water rates, local representation on the Metropolitan Sewerage/Water System Committee, and more.
In a March 12 Asheville Citizen-Times article, Rep. Moffitt suggests, "Selective timbering under the auspices of a professional arborist is the best thing for a watershed." Moffitt chairs a state committee that's considering stripping the city of Asheville of the water system, creating a new regional authority to own and manage the system, handing it off to the Metropolitan Sewerage District, or leaving things the way they are. Here's a flashback at the controversy over a late-1980s clear-cutting contract in the 21,000-acre North Fork Reservoir watershed. (A file photo of clear-cut logging at the North Fork Reservoir in the late 1980s.)
The public weighed in on the fate of the city's water system today, Feb. 23, with the majority telling a study group of four legislators that the utility should remain in the city's hands.

Tonight, Feb. 20, Mountain Voices Alliance is hosting an open forum about the future of the Asheville-Buncombe water system from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Jubilee! in downtown Asheville (46 Wall St.).

Tim Moffitt discuss issues during a break at the forum.
A sacred topic attracted more than 200 people who crammed into the pews of Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church on Monday night: the Asheville water system. Hosted by the Asheville-Buncombe League of Women Voters (and co-sponsored by Mountain Xpress and Urban News), the Feb. 13 forum served as an informational session to the public about the water system, its history and its possible future. These are the highlights.
