Groundwater ownership

Published: Friday, May. 30, 2014 - 9:05 am

Re "Proposed water sale is appalling" (Mariel Garza, May 25): How can anyone logically argue that the water beneath their land is theirs to use without any consideration of others. Since groundwater knows no boundaries, it is communal property. Unfortunately, we cannot trust that our neighbors will pump that water responsibly. Therefore, some sort of regulations is absolutely necessary.
