My wife and I built the pond together. We put our blood, sweat and tears into it.

I'm not surprised the EPA got involved.

Should have just hired some undocumented Canadian beavers to build it for him.

More like "support for Gayson" Not that its wrong, just saying. And the administrators are right, this kid is getting his ass kicked. Nothing will incite bullies and trolls like a young boy wearing a "girls" backpack. I give him a week before someone rips that pack off him and beats him up. Not saying its right, but you know how terrible young kids are these days.

"on his sprawling eight-acre Wyoming farm"

Didn't know they had farms in Wyoming, let alone farms that sprawl as much as eight acres.

FTA: "We put our blood, sweat and tears into it. It was our dream."

After this is all over, they really need to sit down with someone who can help him set better goals.

FTFA: "I am not going to roll over and let [the government] tell me what I can do on my land. I followed the rules."


Favorite line in the article. I am sympathetic the the guy and hope that this all resolves in his favor, but those two phrases, side by side, are very funny

/or something

That's what I thought this was about after just reading the headline, and was ready for all kinds of HOA hatred, but then I RTFA...

There is a better joke to be made, but it isn't coming to me.

FnkyTwn: rynthetyn: Dude had a permit to build a stock pond. Damming a creek is a different matter altogether.

This. Wyoming didn't just decide to let somebody, anybody, damn up an actual creek. Everybody knows how this works.

Here's his "little" stock pond. This is just silly.





HE BUILT A DAMN DAM.


But it has a 'Merkan flag, Libtard. Checkmate!

Well, he's welcome to try and track down the water that was on his property the moment he signed the papers to become the owner.

Anybody looking to post in this thread, please review:

dam = a structure that restricts water flow in order to create a reservoir, or the act of creating such a structure.

damn = what God does to you when you misuse the word "damn" to mean "dam."

Thank you.

Landowner - I want to build a pond and dam a waterway and discharge water elsewhere on my property.

Government - OK, you can build a pond.

Government - Wait, your pond is fine. We got issues with the other stuff you did.

Landowner - But, but... I got a permit. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.

Somehow, I doubt this is just a pond that fills from rainfall on his land. If it's a waterway, you can't just dam it up and waste most of it through evaporation in order to give your horsies and duckies a drink, and afford your grandchildren an opportunity to drown. Wyoming averages only about 22 inches of rainfall a year; downstream water rights are a big farking deal. This might be just a bureaucratic SNAFU by the EPA, but it very well might not be, too.
