gives the city of Medford exclusive rights to the water sources, including rain.

Can't wait for them to have exclusive rights to the air.

My understanding of water collection laws was based in the effects it had on the water table and destabilizing ecologies because of that. Or did I buy into a piece of propoganda.

How would collecting water damage the water table?

So don't quote me on this it's been a hot second since I've studied ecology and even then I only took those courses because they were required. But the gist of it is that while one person siphoning rainwater probably won't do anything when you have large communities doing it it adversely affect local ecology by causing essentially artificial droughts, which causes Flora and fauna die-off.

I have no idea. My knowledge on the subject was outlined above and I'm not even sure that's accurate.

Feels like the water would go back into the environment pretty quickly or at least the same as if I took a shower.
