Private property

Is something you CREATE with the fruits of your labor. Anything claimed and not created is fraudulent, because you used force of some kind, against another potential claimer, to acquire it.

Since you couldn't possible defend your claim against everyone else, you should pay everyone else for your exclusive use of the resource. As it is the government gives its cronies these exclusive use rights for free.

And by the way, water is not widely available to everyone, everywhere in the world.
