Amazingly unique water plant direct filtration from the pure waters of the Appalachains.
Water Plant Operator III (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCJune 6, 2014
Working for the City of Asheville's water production division for the past 6 years has been an amazing adventure. It's a very unique place to work as it is one of the few Municipalities to have protective rights over its entire watershed. Anywhere that water can enter the 450 acre Burnett Reservoir from the blue ridge parkway to the lake is protected and patrolled and entrance is strictly prohibited with the exception of school and scheduled tours. But even the cleanest of surface waters need to be disinfected to neutralize dangerous and even life threatening bacteria and viruses. The North Fork water treatment plant filters and treats over 20 Million Gallons per Day of clean, safe, and aesthetically pleasing water for the citizens of Asheville North Carolina and the surrounding satellite townships.
Pros
unique work schedule, 8 days on and 6 days off
Cons
low pay comparable to other municipalities in north carolina

Senior Police Officer (Former Employee) –  Asheville, NCSeptember 6, 2013
The department is not a a place I would recommended. The command staff is very corrupt and only for those who drinks the Kool-Aid.
