That isn't too far from me and Oregon's water laws are a terrible tanged mess. Part of them were hijacked by the enviromentalists as was the ageny in charge and eventually you end up with AT LEAST 2 agencies or more when it comes to water issues.

a friend on mine is fighting it right now in regards to prospecting/mining. You can get a permit from one agency but if someone from the other ageny decides they don't like what you are doing they can claim it falls under their agencies domain and stop you.

I have a feeling that in the next coupple of years it is going to "come to a head" especially if unemployment remains a high as it is (coincidentally in the gold bearing areas) and gold prices stay high.

The farmers and miners are both getting hurt by the economy and the regulators, they may not be able to change the economy, but the regulators are expendable and the rules can be changed

That's what they think.

In Florida, they MAKE us build ponds to retain water. It keeps the water from flowing out to sea and it soaks into the ground to replenish the underground aquifer that gives us our drinking water.

Just like kalifornia. Just like Washington State. Just like Colorado.

I used to hate our hot and humid summers (Oklahoma). But now I realize it keeps the kommifornians out.

Oh No. Wonder if I could be in trouble for the rain barrels at my remote cabin. Guess I better start hand digging a well out there.

Itís sad but this is facts I witnessed Washington state turn into little Californian and soon I will have to move my family out of Oregon. I think I will try Montana next or just go back to Wyoming.

How long will be before they came up with idea, that air is even more "publicly owned"(it's everywhere!) and make the law and tax people for the right to breath? I think judge Roberts will be O.K. with it.

Oregons fight over water rights is more complicated than one might think and it goes way back in the 1800's when a sort of loophole in a "swamp reclaimation act" let one man claim vast tracts of land and attempts to prevent the wholesale hydraulic mining that raised havoc in CA.

Some of the laws were meant, and worked, back then to break the backs of a few who had twisted and abused the laws to claim huge amount of the State. Unfortunately the rules stayed on the books and are being used by environuts to harrass everyone who owns two acres or uses a gold pan on a stream

Sounds like the term "The Left Coast" is steadily achieving realization in its totality.

Sadly true. Oregon is basically run by 4 Counties. All 4 have been invaded and taken over by the infection

It brings to mind the analogy of the swarms of locusts. Leftist doctrine feeds off of the producers, and when it has ravaged a region, moves on to riper pickings.

Yeah -- the State laying claim to the water that happens to land on your property is just wrong.
