I posted a picture the other day (don't remember when, so I'll load it up again for you) of the Asheville Watershed sign on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There's a really good attempt to keep the water pristine that rolls down these slopes into Burnett Reservoir.
The State of NC is trying to take control of the Asheville water away from local government, and Asheville is fighting against it, to keep our local water under local control is very important to us.
Sorry, I fell asleep at the switch, so to speak, and didn't post this at my usual early morning time. But here it is now.
