Government overstepping its boundaries again

Recommended Posts

Actually water collection is very real law and as been for longer than 1925, these go back to early settlers. My father has over 30 acres in Montana and his property rights include water allocation from a creek that is supplied by snow runoff. His allocation is based on a series of ownership rights that supersede where property boundaries exist.


He has had to go to court several times to get his neighbors in the lands above him with lesser water rights to quit diverting the creek for flood irrigation. He has 3rd rights to water while theirs are closer to 25th and they have at times shut off his water supply and the eventual access to the river, taking up to 3,000 times more water than they have apportioned to them.


If this guy is diverting water that feeds a river he is in violation of the law and should be required to follow the state and county guidelines. Claiming personal property rights is only going to get him more fines and jail time. His water rights are more than likely part of the county record and that is where he is in violation. Being a stubborn SOB claiming he is protecting his property rights for Americans makes for great theatrics but in the end he is no better than someone putting a fence on the wrong side of a property line and claiming more real estate for themselves.
