    AFAIK, the guy basically dug pits on his property so he could fish with his family and water the grass without running up his bill. I don't think he manipulated any natural features to make his ponds. The "dams" are more of a flood control / drainage device.

    I could be wrong, but that is what the local news has been saying.

    Yup.

    IMHO they're real beef is with God. How dare nature provide this man with free pond water when the city could be bilking him for a kings ransom in utilites!

    So if the town is claiming they own the water including that from rainfall, does that mean they are also liable for damages from floods??

    Do the own the rain as soon as it condenses and falls, or only once it hits the ground? LOL!

    If the water rights include water that's not in the ground yet, does that mean each and every person is hoarding water in 50-75% of their body?

    It's a water rights dispute, which are pretty common in the western US. Google Snake River Water Ajudication and feast your eyes on that one...

    Don't worry the latin conspirators say ALL THE USA government is run by the corps

    I'm gonna tell this faggots we should first worry about our own corruption and our fucking crime problem.

    But the discussion about water rights seems interesting, I think the city is being a dick the man is just saving some water
