(a) Every public corporation heretofore or hereafter organized or created in this state pursuant to authorization or determination by a municipality or its governing body, which public corporation now or hereafter owns a water system or systems, and any municipality in this state in which any part of such water system or systems is situated are each hereby authorized, without the necessity of an election of qualified voters of any such municipality or of any other approval or proceeding other than those specifically prescribed in this article, to transfer and convey such system or systems and all right, title, and interest therein, including, without limitation, all reversionary, residuary, or remainder rights provided by law to any other public corporation, the certificate of incorporation of which was filed in the office of the probate judge of the same county in which was filed the certificate of incorporation of the public corporation proposing to make such transfer and conveyance or in the office of the probate judge of an adjacent county.

(b) Any such transfer and conveyance may be made with or without pecuniary consideration and on such terms and conditions as the governing body of such municipality and the board of directors or other governing body of the public corporation making the transfer and conveyance may determine.

(c) Any such transfer and conveyance shall be made only upon the adoption by the governing body of each municipality in which is situated any part of the water system or systems proposed to be transferred and conveyed and by the board of directors or other governing body of the public corporation proposing to make such transfer and conveyance of appropriate resolutions authorizing such transfer and conveyance. Such resolution of the board of directors or other governing body of the public corporation shall set forth its finding and determination that the public corporation to which the transfer is to be made is one to which a transfer and conveyance can properly be made under the provisions of this article.
