We have asked a couple of times for our public bodies to do a little bit more to get involved in the effort to stop the interbasin transfer.
The state of North Carolina approved a request from two of its towns, Concord and Kannapolis, to withdraw up to 10 million gallons a day from the Catawba River.
That water would be returned, as sewage, to the Yadkin-Pee Dee River basin.
When this first popped up, at the end of 2005, Chester County Council approved a resolution saying it was opposed to the transfer. There wasn’t too much other action after that, for a while.
