    He's right: It IS a resource that should be managed.

    Not FOR profit, though - so he's wrong on that part. . .Douche. Because managing it will help ensure availability and quality *too all* - marketing it limits availability and doesn't do **** to ensure quality *too all*

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Right to life is small consolation if you die due to being denied that which is necessary to sustain life.

    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    I don't believe that water management should be considered a business endeavour, however, here in Canada we consider fresh water to be a natural resource that needs to be managed, controlled and protected. States in the US, such as California, have attempted to have "pipelines" built to Canada for the purpose of transporting our water resources south to meet their needs. Most fresh water resources of any consequence are so large that countries own them and they're not selling to private businesses.

    Not surprised, in Maryland we're taxed for the rain that lands on our property.

    What a loony country we've become.

    I'll start by saying I don't support the lack of sense in many of these regulations, nor do I support the Oregon government's position that it owns all the animals and physical resources. However, there is an issue of water management. Where does the water from the fellow's collection ponds go? Is it allowed to flow onto the property of others affecting their property? Do his collection efforts dimiish the waterflow of other people's water resource? Suppose his neighbors' property rely upon the rainfall runoff that happened for generations until this fellow created his ponds.

    Now multiply this question by every landowner in the state and the state government would spend billions separately investigating and adjudicating water questions. So instead, water policies and laws are formed that serve the larger group. But whenever one feeds a village someone's oxen gets gored. Sucks when you're that someone.

    Btw, those opposed to the assignation of water rights need to look into the history of the Dust Bowl.

    California has a long history of turning entire regions into virtual deserts. Resist, you must!

    Who owns lakes and reservoirs, etc.?

    I've purchased my water from a water services company for many years. It's a cooperative of which I am a member.
