According to the Utah state government, citizens who collect rainwater are in violation of the law. Citizens are battling with the governments because they believe if the water falls on their land then it is considered their property. The more information the government keeps from its citizens about issues, the easier it is for the government to eliminate freedoms. If people continue to listen to whatever the government tells them, we will be constantly losing rights.

Pros and Cons of Water Ownership

Pros and Cons of Water Ownership | AP: Water Ownership | Scoop.it

Although 97% or Earth is water, only 1% of that water is available for human consumption. Disputes over water ownership are creating a large number of problems. Because of the fact that water is constantly moving, it is difficult control who has a right to the water. Having water as a national property is that the water crosses national boundaries. If we were to consider water property of the global commons, this could create large disputes over sovereignty of other resources.
