This is ridiculous. The short of it is that an Oregon man has ponds that collect rain water that runs down into his ponds from his land. He’s had them for 37 years and their primary function is to extinguish forest fires and they’ve been used for that purpose by local agencies. But now Oregon wants to fine the man and put him behind bars citing a law that says water from tributaries can’t be collected. But the owner says this is rain water and the law doesn’t apply to him.
