The reality is that even on private land the Alphabet agencies are cracking down hard on anyone who would try to do anything of any real scale using water. The wetands legislation enforced by the Army Corp and the EPA would kill and prosecute anyone in the US trying to do this in plain site. You might get away with it if they don't catch you actually doing it. It is part of the culture of control by the government and the loss of stewardship of their own lands of farming families some of which I know have been farming their lands since before the revolutionary war. It is only one front these brave farmers fight in our country as they are attacked from all sides of their business lives to become little more then tenant farmers on their own land. It is the saddest thing you will ever see. The loss of control of the land and the real wealth derived from it from family farming hands is a national tragedy.
“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.
