Water Bill Debate

The right to call the shots over water has the city of Asheville on the verge of entering a legal battle with the state.

Local elected leaders say they're ready for a legal fight to stop the state from taking their water system.
 
The state house gave final approval to legislation that ends the city's control of the water system.

The new law if signed by the governor would give control of the Asheville water system to the Metropolitan Sewerage District or MED.

The city would receive no compensation for the system.

Opponents say that's a big problem for the city.

The governors office won't say whether he supports the bill, but it passed with strong enough margins to override any veto.
