Who Owns Rain Water That Falls on Your Roof?
Our Mothers Keeper blog author and I have been in a discussion, where I am at opposing odds to this authors opinion of who owns and controls how rain water is collected and used by both Home Owners and Business. But most of all should a government bureaucrat be in control of how and where you use rain water that falls on your roof!
The jest of this discussion is who owns the rain water that falls on your home and property and what right do you have in collecting and using this rain water.
Considering government bureaucrats record of managing any program, agency or plan, I for one do not want ‘government’ bureaucrats telling me what, when and where I can use or harvest a resource that is present on my personal property.
Contrary to what some would like you to believe, every drop of water that has ever been on planet earth is still on planet earth. It may be relocated to a different location, locked up in ice sheets, snow caps, lakes, rivers, oceans or being applied to your garden or lawn. Once used, it does not disappear to never be seen again. Some is absorbed and recharges underground water tables or evaporates to fall again in the form of snow and rain. Some of it may even drain off into rivers feeding man made lakes and at some point is dumped into an ocean some place on planet earth.

Just a little food for thought.
