High, Dry and Destitute

High,  Dry and Destitute

WA State citizens, private property owners and farmers, in Skagit and Clallam County have been left HIGH, DRY AND DESTITUTE by WA State DOE WATER RULES.

DESTITUTE  by definition, WITHOUT THE BASIC NECESSITIES OF LIFE.

Our Elected Representative “MUST” Legalize Citizen’s Water Rights.

Water, is our lifeblood. It is used to grow food and to grow cities. It provides power to run our homes, factories, and businesses.

PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL WA STATE ENTITIES CONCERNED WITH CITIZENS WATER RIGHTS

Our WA State elected legislators need to hear how Ecology’s Destitute/Destitution is impacting your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, in the United States of America.

DESTITUTE,  by definition, WITHOUT THE BASIC NECESSITIES OF LIFE.

DESTITUTION, by definition poverty so extreme that one lacks the means to provide for oneself.

——————————————————————————-

Our Elected Representative MUST Legalize Citizen’s Water Rights,

OR, THEY SHALL  leave our DESTITUTE  private property owners, citizens, no choice, but to continue to “duke it out”  in court with EXPENSIVE CITIZEN FUNDED LAWSUITS against the WA State DOE.

If you have not signed the petition requesting the Washington State Legislature to provide the Skagit Watershed with water, please do!  They are seeing the signatures and reading your comments.

From: Zachary Barborinas

The Department of Ecology is tasked to regulate water for ALL citizens of the state and they have not done their job. Rural farmers and landowners need legislative action to reinstate basic legal access to water to ease the economic hardships and uncertainty before them because of this unconstitutional action. 

For those of you unable to make it, please provide comments for the Legislature so they see these bills are supported.  They need to hear about how this is impacting you!

An introduction to a series by Pearl Rains Hewett

DEPRIVED OF OUR WATER
BY THE APPOINTED FEDERAL – STATE AGENCIES – TRIBAL TREATY -TAPPED
This series of on the taking and depravation of our water rights will report, document and expose the many ways we the people are being deprived not only of our water right, but to our right to water.

—————————————————————-

WA STATE DEPT OF ECOLOGY (DOE)
It will examine and document the many parts that appointed State agencies, the WA State DOE specifically plays in the deprivation of our water private and riparian rights in Counties in WA State. It will question both the DUE PROCESS of LAW and competency of the WA State DOE in creating and imposing and the WA Rules in WA State. The topics of DOE coerced monopoly and Commodity trading will also be discussed

THE DUNGENESS WATER RULE
Any and all OTHER related documented information that fit under this category and have previously been posted on “behindmyback.org”

PUBLIC COMMENT
It will address the documents the nearly 1000 public comments sent to the WA State DOE on the Dungeness Water Rule from the people of Clallam County and the mote effective that those comments had on the decision of the DOE Appointed State Agency. Why did we bother with nearly 1000 comments? When all we got back was 525 pages of response from DOE and no change in The Dungeness Water Rule.

Washington State Legislature: Provide Water for Rural Landowners in Skagit Watershed

Zachary Barborinas

United States

Legal access to well water has been eliminated for rural farmers and landowners in the Skagit River Basin, the 3rd largest watershed on the West Coast. A result so unbalanced and scientifically unsupported amongst our abundant resources, it has left over 6,000 landowners without any legal source of water, including 475 homes already built and occupied. The Department of Ecology is tasked to regulate water for ALL citizens of the state and they have not done their job. Rural farmers and landowners need legislative action to reinstate basic legal access to water to ease the economic hardships and uncertainty before them because of this unconstitutional action.

Please help support rural farmers and landowners by signing this petition. You will be asking Washington state legislators to legislatively amend the 2001 Instream Flow Rule to provide water to 6,000 rural citizens in the Skagit Watershed.
