California Drought and Water Rights

I had a professor once tell me “invest in property because it’s something they aren’t making more of.”

2d2193f2-dea5-4839-970c-93ba6c6314f9-620x372The same is starting to become more and more true for water, so maybe it is time that our traditional legal system stops viewing water in the context of ownership and property rights and make it a communal pool. New California water regulations are impeding on water rights that date as far back as 1903 – and I can only wonder why someone’s monetary property interest in a natural resource can trump the health of an evolving world for so many years. Negotiations continue for priority use during growing season.
