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:
- 66.2% said NO, government SHOULD NOT regulate water for agricultural use
- 38.8 % said YES, government SHOULD regulate water for agricultural use
Beginning last May, LANDTHINK.com has asked for participation in a series of questions, the LANDTHINK Pulse. Each month, we ask one, straightforward question, in an effort to gather interesting insight into the current land real estate market.
