Lawmakers in Raleigh hope a new measure will help
ensure peace between towns and states by regulating how Carolinian communities
can draw water from neighboring river basins.
Inspired by a request by Concord
and Kannapolis to draw 10 million gallons of water per day from the Catawba
River Basin, the measure should deflect future problems by requiring interbasin
transfer permit applicants to consider their own water supplies first and
modify what they take during a drought.
