Collect rainwater and face jail-time?

6 posts in this topic

WTF?  Everyday more and more strange things pop out of the woodwork.  Why would they (who ever they are) not allow a person to save and stockpile water?  Will having water when the SHTF make it more difficult to control the folks?

Collecting rainwater on your own property can now lead to jail time, as proven by a man from Oregon who was just sentenced to prison for doing just that.  Who owns the rain? The US government, apparently, now.  Not so long ago, it was common practice across much of the world to collect rainwater into man made wells on your property as a means of farming, irrigation, and having fresh clean water.  It was just as common as canning your own food, having knowledge of at least some basic survival skills, and being self-sufficient.

It wasn’t even that many generations ago that all of this was common practice – people born before WWII were pretty adept at these skills, as they were a necessity to survival.  One of the main (and easiest) ways to ensure survival? Collecting rainwater on your own property.  The practical uses for storing and collecting rainwater are numerous and many people across the world in rural areas still do it today for all of the reasons listed above.  However, over the past few years, laws making the collection of rainwater illegal have been causing an uproar across the US.

Now, a man from Grey Point, Oregon has been sentenced to thirty days in prison for storing collected rainwater on his very own property – and the public is outraged.

According to CNS News (source):

A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.

We are dealing with people who have become completely separated from reality,  psychotic individuals whose consciosness has been seared with madness.  

Laughing as they beat pregnant women to death on a traffic stop, face slamming men into the concrete,  paying people to riot in the street. Pissing down your back and telling you its raining. 

See?  Do you understand?  They laugh and mock while they KILL!!  Drink and Party as city’s burn,  do you get it?? 

That's what makes them so dangerous, they almost have a complete disdain for human life.  Are they even human themselves?

If everyone higher up the watershed did what this guy has done, then there would be a lot less available downstream. He isn't filling a few rain barrels off his roof. He's dammed streams running through his property and affected other properties. 

If you believe we all have a right to water then you have to accept that the water from snowmelt and rainfall needs to find it's way into the distribution network. 

Here's a better article http://www.mnn.com/your-home/at-home/blogs/oregon-man-in-possession-of-13-million-gallons-of-illicit-rainwater

and the comments from some locals offer a wider perspective.

Thanks for the clarification. Rain barrels are wonderful things. I have 2. My husband has a big tank that collects run-off from his shop. 

But this guy was stealing from neighbors and the eco-system. Like dams that steal water from downstream Mexico to irrigate farms in California. It's comparable to people who build up hills for home sites, which drains water to other people's land. My sister's driveway floods now since her neighbor brought in truckloads of dirt to raise his house and driveway.

We use rain barrels too. It was all we had when we first moved here. 

I agree with you. It's one thing to want to do what ever you want with your property, but when that could/does affect others people need to be responsible.
