In Oregon, the gub'mnt owns the water rights ~ and it's always been that way as long as it was the property of the United States, which all of it was. Before that it was the property of France, in part, and earlier, of Spain and Russia.
This guy has a choice ~ he can get his permits like everybody else, or move. It's not a tyranny.

The article says he did get his permits and they reneged on them after he had dug the tanks. Think there might be some politicking here?

"It's not a tyranny. "
It's apparently a tyranny going all the way back to the initial application of European hegemony at the beginning of honkie exploration of the Americas.

And if we keep moving out of the shadow of tyrany, instead of fighting it, we will soon run out of planet eh?
When men claim the rain and air over your land, you are not free, you are a peon.
Yeah, Washington has the same rain shadow effect. But they persicute people with rain barrels on their downspouts to water their gardens. All in the name of “fairness”.
BS. It’s Tyrany with velvet gloves.
