Interesting that similar issues are taking on more meaning in Ontario, with its 250,000 lakes and probably the largest share of Great Lakes shorelines. I attended the Elmvale Water Festival (north of Toronto) to hear Maude Barlow warn against the "Water Hunters", and the destruction of water tables when aquafiers and ground water are not in the public domain. Who will be the Sheriff in Utah? The Elmvale groupis a grass roots organization taking a preemptive position to inform and if necessary fight potential water hunters.
