Now, is this a solution? Not really because, eventually, the wells will dry up too. It also takes water away from everyone else. However, instead of doing something simple, I can see the government here adopting a solution like Colorado where private landowners don’t own the rain that falls on their property (there’s lots of historic reasons for this).
