    Default You think we have it bad.

    US states criminalises the collection of water.

    (NaturalNews) Many of the freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. are quickly eroding as the nation transforms from the land of the free into the land of the enslaved, but what I'm about to share with you takes the assault on our freedoms to a whole new level. You may not be aware of this, but many Western states, including Utah, Washington and Colorado, have long outlawed individuals from collecting rainwater on their own properties because, according to officials, that rain belongs to someone else.

    As bizarre as it sounds, laws restricting property owners from "diverting" water that falls on their own homes and land have been on the books for quite some time in many Western states. Only recently, as droughts and renewed interest in water conservation methods have become more common, have individuals and business owners started butting heads with law enforcement over the practice of collecting rainwater for personal use.

    Check out this YouTube video of a news report out of Salt Lake City, Utah, about the issue. It's illegal in Utah to divert rainwater without a valid water right, and Mark Miller of Mark Miller Toyota, found this out the hard way.

    After constructing a large rainwater collection system at his new dealership to use for washing new cars, Miller found out that the project was actually an "unlawful diversion of rainwater." Even though it makes logical conservation sense to collect rainwater for this type of use since rain is scarce in Utah, it's still considered a violation of water rights which apparently belong exclusively to Utah's various government bodies.

    "Utah's the second driest state in the nation. Our laws probably ought to catch up with that," explained Miller in response to the state's ridiculous rainwater collection ban.

    Salt Lake City officials worked out a compromise with Miller and are now permitting him to use "their" rainwater, but the fact that individuals like Miller don't actually own the rainwater that falls on their property is a true indicator of what little freedom we actually have here in the U.S. (Access to the rainwater that falls on your own property seems to be a basic right, wouldn't you agree?)

    I found this article all by myself, It's crazy shit.

    Hi Floki, I think this is very interesting and should be brought to peoples attention. I feel much better about the water charges after reading this.

    Give it time here as well.They wouldn't like you reducing your water bill too much.

    Though in Ireland they should nearly pay us to get rid of rainwater.

    With the amount of rain that falls in Ireland and in the UK, if the government did the same as they are doing in the US, they would be one of the riches governments in the world.

    Fingers crossed that will never happen.

    Death comes to all of us, sometimes sooner than we expect.

    Don't live your day like it is your last, but live it like it is your first.
    New, exciting and fun

    It seems to me that Water is Now being Treated as The New Oil and The New Company, Irish Water has Total Control of All Water Resources on The Island of Ireland South, Thus in the near future even The Rain Water that falls on the island will be considered as Part of Irish Waters Products and it will most lightly be considered Theft to harvest it by any method by private citizens or for that matter any other Business Entity for Private use. Very well Highlighted "irishdeltaforce"

    Willy, California, is an Open Society unlike The Oppressive State we exist in. The Religious Dominated States now emerging are one of the reasons for the Backlash by Extreme and Still very influential Religious Entities on the Island as Leaders are seemingly, unwilling or unable to stem this increasingly Ultra-Conservative influence in the life of Ireland

    There is alot of influences from outside of Ireland aswell like Europe Fascist, who want Ireland to privatise everything so they can gobble it all up for themselfs.
    Veolia Water is a Frence company who charge businesses for the use of Irish water since 2007.
    Water is the new Oil and it,s never going to run out !!!
