I don't understand why people aren’t seeing this for what it is, and that its been around for a long time. Its actually for your protection to
keep your water prices lower
. Our water reserves are collected from rain and snow runoff that travels from mountains and higher altitudes to
lower altitudes, with some of it seeping into the aquifers to provide for wells. If you allowed either a single entity or a group of people to begin
hoarding that water, it cuts the supply and drives up the price of the remaining water
. By having laws like this on the books they ensure that
the prices of water remains reasonably low and the supply of water remains as high as possible.
Maybe this is just easier for me to understand because I live in Florida were we live under constant water restrictions when there is a lack of
rainfall. In areas like Australia, of course they let you collect water because its a fairly flat dry area. Australia's water is lost if its not
collected since water does not flow from mountains into rivers to feed large water supplies to the extent that it happens in other countries.
Let me give you an example:
If someone bought the Himalayan Gangotri Glacier and damned the melt waters, it would then starve out the Ganges River in India and cut off millions
of people from their water supply.
So which is REALLY
controlling the water? Making sure everyone was fair access to reasonably priced water, or allowing certain folks to hoard
it and drive the price up for others?
