The water wars are just ramping up. I live in a rural area. Everyone up here has a well for their drinking water. They put in their own wells, paid
for by them. Maintained by them.
Several years ago, the government decided they should jump in and make sure our water was safe for us to drink. Now, this area is famous for Mama
Nature's artesian aquifer riddled throughout the mountains here. Pure, sweet, no chemicals water.
Not only did they try to put meters on our wells, they also tried to force us to implement a system of of having our water tested. By that I mean, we
would have to collect our own water in their government provided containers, and ship it to their facility to have it tested every 90 days. Oh forgot
to mention, we would have to pay for this new service.
The backlash was immediate, and forceful. Needless to say, we are not forced to do what they want.....yet.
