LANDTHINK Pulse: No Role for Government in Water Regulation

LANDTHINK Pulse: No Role for Government in Water Regulation

Water rights have been a hot topic of discussion all across the country, so last month LANDTHINK posed the following question to our audience: Do you think government should regulate water for agricultural use? LANDTHINK.com, an authoritative online resource for advice, knowledge, opinions and trends related to land, is pleased to announce the November results. Our informal online survey revealed that 66.2% of respondents think government should not regulate water for agricultural use. As the world population increases, the U.S. as well as other countries, will undoubtedly be affected by water scarcity. Agriculture and food production are one of the largest consumers of water. Diminishing water resources is a global issue we’re facing as the need for water is expected to grow exponentially in the years to come.

LANDTHINK subscribers, fans, followers and land industry professionals across the country chimed-in regarding their feelings on government’s involvement in water rights:

  • Believe it or not, I actually voted “Yes”. There are considerations that have to be made for irrigating out of rivers, and the Corps of Engineers needs to make sure the waterways stay navigable. In states that lack water resources, I believe some regulatory body should oversee how much is appropriated to make sure that no farmer is taking an excessive amount. I am for small government, but in this case, in my opinion, there is a need for some amount of oversight and regulation.
