Government control of your water Seems like Government control of everything these days seems the norm. Water is no different. This is why many people choose to drill there own prepper or outlaw water well that no one knows about and is not on any books or regestered for later goverment control. With City and municipal water districts water systems max out, the only way to keep these systems going is apply more water rationing and rules and fines to water users who use too much water ( this means any at all) . Most water systems are rated for X amount of homes.
A water system rated for 3000 homes puts 6000 homes on the water system to gain cash flow, then mails everyone a letter that you will be fined if you use too much water or water your lawn during water rationing. Most water systems were put in years ago, now underground water mains being old and need of repair cause many systems to charge water bills as high as some peoples rent. The days of cheap water bills are over. No wonder people are drilling there own water wells with smaller more portable rigs . Your water is only as safe as the people who handle it. With the low-skilled, low-educated population of water district workers, some are even illegal aliens working for water districts. How safe is your water.
If they use too much chlorine you get your hair dyed just taking a shower, and your eyes burn just being in the shower. If they use to little chlorine your water could have one of many thousands of 3rd world water bourn diseases. Some water districts use timers to add chlorine, the problem with timers is when water use is slow in winter you may get to much treatment. When water usage goes up, you water is not treated enough.
Pure water when in the ground is clean and pure. Once water is pumped in large million gallon tanks and then runs through more miles of water lines that run down every street. How many miles of city streets are there? That's how many miles of water lines there are in your city. No wonder it takes 1000's of gallons of chlorine to keep water at low bacteria levels. Many officials claim chlorine is safe!. If chlorine is so safe, why do you have to have Hazmat certification and a special license to even transport it down a road. If you get caught hauling large amounts of chlorine you can be put in jail for possible terror attack without these permits and licenses. The Good Old standard water well is still the safest form of water. Current Wars are fought now are over crude oil, the wars of the near future will be fought over clean water. Having your own water well or solar well will be your familys best investment ever ! In the near furture with more and more water restrictions, getting a water well will get much harder. The reason is many places you can not get a well without a well permit. This means when they decide not to issue permits, this mean no one gets a water well. Wiith no water, what good is your land, and what resale value does it have. In many states now you can not get permit to transport mobile home unless you first have septic and well permit. Just like other restrictions they are made to protect you. Please protect your water rights.
