§ 93-59. Extensions by County, Authority or Districts.
The County and/or the Districts shall have the authority to construct any extensions at
their sole cost and expense and connect such extensions to the water system and/or the
water system owned by the city and maintained and operated by the Authority. Nothing
in this Part 2 shall be deemed to preclude any such extension by the County and/or the
Districts. Any extension shall be considered a regional water line, a water transmission
line, a water distribution line, and/or a main, as appropriate. Any extensions made by the
County or the districts to the water system owned by the city and maintained and
operated by the Authority will comply with the current Asheville Buncombe Water
Authority Water System Extension Design Guidelines and Specifications.
In constructing an extension the County and/or the Districts as appropriate shall be
required to comply only with applicable provisions of the regional water agreement.
In the event the Authority constructs an extension of the water system owned by the city
and maintained and operated by the Authority serving only customers outside Henderson
County, the Authority shall provide written notice to the Utilities Director of such
extension for informational purposes only, without any requirement to comply with the
policies in this Part 2. To the extent the Authority constructs a nonregional water line that
is an extension of the water system owned by the City and maintained and operated by
the Authority that will serve customers within Henderson County, the Authority must
receive prior approval from the Henderson County Commissioners for such extension;
however, the application and fee requirements of § 93-58 shall be deemed waived.
