California to Tax Private Well Water

I was watching Andy Woods and he brought this up.

Unbelievable…CA will be charging people with private wells for the privilege of using their own water on their own property. Let’s remember Gov. Newsom’s actions when the dems put him up as a presidential candidate. As the saying goes…As California goes, so goes the nation. This (CA) is a blueprint for what they hope to implement countrywide. More from the article:

“This is not merely a bureaucratic hassle. There are fees, of course. The base filing fee is $300 per well, which all extractors are required to report. Then there’s an additional fee of $10 per acre foot with a meter, $25 per acre foot without. Tardy filers face a late fee of 25% per month.

California Globe reached out to Ms. Stork and SGMA to inquire how widely this letter was sent and where the State Water Resources Control Board derives the right to charge well owners for water on their own property. This story will be updated to include her comment if either responds.

Meanwhile, the ramifications for property rights are enormous.

‘They’re sending out letters to property owners saying they must declare [if] they use just two acre feet,” observes the source who received the letter. “If they use more they must pay an annual fee of $300 for each well plus they must meter the water and send in a monthly usage report and pay a fee for water that is pumped starting in Feb 2023. What a great racket! The government provides no service, no support, no product, doesn’t even do the billing! That’s all on citizens. All [the government does] is cash the check.’l

Well Mr Perfect Hair doo survived his recall and let me tell ya he can do whatever he wants to. Now it does not matter that people are selling their property as fast as they can to leave there because he will probably think up some way to punish the ones leaving.

This is so riDiculous. GoD gives the water for free, anD the wells Don't cost the state one penny. I'm waiting for them to start charging for breathing the air!
Thinking like that will get you in hot water. I wouldn't be surprised if Google has already informed the IRS, so expect a visit from one of their new robocop auditors: “Freeze punk, and show me all of your receipts!”

AZ needs a Wall on our western border to keep the socialists from CA from coming here and wrecking it like the state they're fleeing.

Conservatives are more than welcome though!

Newsom had commercials in Florida saying if you wanted "Freedom" to move to California. Sure, let me pack up and move there! :mazy o_O
I hope all the crazies DO take him up on that. I would pay $$ to help relocate progs and libs from my state.

It helps the rest of our country if the majority of liberal mental illness is concentrated in a few, easily identified areas.

I wonder if the politicians in Ca have any way of knowing where all the private water wells are, or does a citizen have to inform them? I'd be like 'well, what well?' People from Ca are moving to the area where I live in droves. I just hope they don't continue to vote for idiots

Even if they don't the dominion voting machines are likely gonna be the fix for the libertards.

I think it's time we recognize what Income Tax and Property Tax really are....tribute to our ruling overlords. In cities I can see some fees to cover sewer systems and whatnot but having to pay a fee to be "allowed" to stay on land we bought with our own money??? I can't stay property taxes.

As I posted in another thread. We can save the country a ton of money by eliminating the IRS by just giving ALL of our money to the government! No need for a graduated tax, flat tax, no tax, etc. Then the politicians can reward themselves with big raises and benefits on us. How else should we pay back this "service" to us, the people?
