No, but it’s a great way for the dems to get their hands in the till.
I’m from Alabama....so this has me kinda curious. Is there a “Ditch-minister” now within the US government (perhaps the EPA)? Will the Ditch-Minister tour America’s ditches and have a listing of every ditch in the nation? Will the ditch-digger association finally get recognition, and a national meeting (preferably in Vegas if possible)? And will there finally be UN recognition of our America’s ditches....with a Commission on Ditches?
I know some folks from Arizona....so they might be curious about the wash-commission idea, or the wash-minister position. Course, to be honest....a wash isn’t significant until you get to monsoon season (usually July-August). So the wash-minister job might only be part-time and not as important as the ditch-minister job (full time). Course, this is the Alabama in me....talking common sense and such.
Ditch-minister would be the EPA thieves.
The EPA has been trying to steal water rights / property rights across the west [ and more ? ] for decades . Note the recent Idaho landowner who wanted to build a home in a platted subdivision [ sued , fined, and blocked by the EPA = recently reversed by the US Supreme Court ] and a Wyoming family that is using a stock pond from snow melt and other rain runoff [ threatened by the EPA with a $75,000 fine per day ]. Expensive Court cases mending.
The west depends on snow runoff , irrigation for farming, and lakes / reservoirs / dams to minimize floods and provide water to homes, businesses, ski areas, and such.
