Who owns water? Most states in the USA claim that the people have the right to water. I can’t imagine anything other than everyone having a right to free water, but its not the case. The right to water was an idea that I was thinking about and I think come out in this book. ‘First user in time, first right’ but where is the democracy. The diversions and claiming of water has had a profound change in the landscape. The access to water, I believe, has defined the landscape and the society.
