pond-2-696x447

In Oregon, Jackson County officials tell a local couple they must tear out a 40-year-old two-acre pond located on the property they bought two years ago. This is the same county, that fined and imprisoned another landowner, Gary Harrington, for illegally collecting rainwater.

In this new case, the county says the water contained in the pond belongs to the Medford Water Commission, according to a 1925 state law.

According to the law, rainwater is not the right of a landowner.

    Press charges of trespassing on the county. If it is their water it needs to stay off his land. Which in reality it is not his land since he has to rent it from the county by paying property taxes.
