Sustainable Deception...'Rain Harvesting' Illegal In CO

Hey, put that rain back....
article: Water Rights and Rain

"All she wants is the rain water that lands on her roof."
"So Kris did what thousands of farmers before her have done: She applied for a water right. Except instead of seeking to divert water from a stream, she sought to collect rain that fell upon the roof of her house and greenhouse. To her surprise, the state engineer opposed her application, arguing that other water users already had locked up the right to use the rain. The Colorado Water Court agreed, and Kris was denied the right to store a few barrels of rainwater. If she persisted with rain harvesting, she would be subject to fines of up to $500 per day."
"the state engineer argued that her roofs were “tributary” to the San Miguel River. Because the San Miguel River is “on call” during the summer months, Kris’s rain catchment would, the state engineer argued, “cause injury to senior water rights.” The court agreed, even though there was no proof that the water dripping from Kris’s roof would ever make it to the river."
"If Kris wanted to collect rainwater for her gardens, she’d have to pursue an augmentation plan and convince the state engineer and water court that she could replace 100 percent of the precipitation captured. Not only did she have to return to the stream every drop of rain she collected, she would have to pay for a complex engineering analysis to prove that her augmentation water would return to the stream in a timeframe mimicking natural conditions."
Sustainable development, again, is about nothing more than controlling every person on this planet as well as every square inch of the planet, through the guise of environmentalism. A massive power grab, in other words, by powerful globalists to subdue absolutely everything unto themselves. This issue of 'water rights' has already become a powerful tool to accomplish the goal...restricting not only the inherent right to water but affecting the the usage of private property as well in an ever increasing number of incidents. See links below to understand the 'huge' scope of the water scam. Be aware...
By the way, according to a recent UN declaration, water is no longer a "basic human right".
compare, connect dots: UN no 'water rights'
36 state water shortages (claimed)
'Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah' 17:7-8
