    They also can pass regulations on the water coming into your house.
    They pass regulations on everything. Big whoop. Not the reason I said they didn't have the power.

    The government has the charge from we the people to protect health and the environment on our behalf, just as those in charge of the forts did.

    Well good luck on that. I for one like bathing in and drinking clean potable water on a daily basis.

    What are you going on about now? You don't need government to have clean water to drink.

    It is the rule of law. Of course, I understand there is a fringe element in society that do not believe in the rule of law. Are you one of them?

    Being a criminal doesn't mean you get arrested. The punishment could just be the loose of just one freedom or a fine to go with it. In this case everyone is dragged and given an order to obey and if they doesn't pass they can't drive the car that failed.

    Actually you do. Or about an 80% reduction in population (for everyone to have direct access to clean water). Direct access to clean water is limited in space and duration, and we are not doing so sustainably. Just because you happen to live on a lake or river does not mean you can access clean water without the government, for at least two reasons. First, that water can be polluted vi air and otherwise, and it is beyond your control. Second, that land could be taken from you without the government; you would be a static target and as soon as the invaders had stand-off weapons in excess of your range you'd cease to exist.
