Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, Leland Stukey & J.O. Dawdy from the Protect Water Rights Coalition (P.W.R.C.) joined Chad on KFYO to talk about their organization and it’s efforts to protect landowner property rights.

The coalition views any restriction on the use of any resource located on landowner’s property as an infringement on the owner’s private property. There are ongoing cases, with previous rulings having found that water below a landowner’s property is the person’s property.

On whether or not landowners own the water below their land, Stukey replied, “I have the privilege of paying taxes on [the water] every year based on the value of that land, which … water is a function of the value of the land.”
