    I don't know how you folk in Texas that run cattle supply water to your stock, but here in WA, Australia we rely on bore water. Because of environmental legislation you can only draw out so much water and there are penalties for "stealing" water as a certain amount is reserved for the environment. So bore water levels drop during the dry season when the aquifers are not replenished and so you need to drill deep to get the good water. There are some folk that help with checking bore water depth, we have few here. They use a particular method that is simple and effective.

    We call this a "water well." Ground water in this part of the state is unreliable or absent, so we build retaining ponds called "tanks" to catch rain water.

    Well you have no problems then in fowling the bore (water well).

    Tanks we call dams. You have to dredge them out from time to time as they silt up.

    Our water here where I live is river water that is treated and is drinkable, but is very hard, however if you run cattle or sheep most pump from the river and that is strictly policed. The government is now trying to buy back water licenses for environmental flows therefore running any type of farm whether it be cattle, dairy, sheep or grain is a real pain, as you would know cattle and sheep produce methane and grain farms use diesel and urea lots of it and the green folk are not happy.

    And to think that we used to consider Australia to be kinda like the southern version of the United States. Hell, you can't even consider the United States to be the United States anymore.

    I think Australia is further down the track in regard to silliness, if you think NYC has a migrant problem, we have given over 500000 temporary residence visa's to migrants in the last 2 years, and you know what that means, there is not enough places to house them. So what does the Federal Government do? Build more houses, but we don not have enough materials to build them plus they must conform to new environmental requirements which adds about $30000 AU to a home. Also you remove your coal fired generators and try and run new transmission lines from solar farms and wind generators and you need to run them over farm land and increase your energy costs that folk cannot afford to use. This of course not not account for the fact we have tons of coal, oil and gas, but because they cause "climate change" they have to stay in the ground. We have local councils which are banning domestic gas in new homes.

    We have a Federal Government that is trying to change the constitution to divide Australia by race, an apartheid system where there are different laws for the indigenous folk . Nope, we are worse then you folk.

    Anyhow here is Russell removing rabbit warrens with LPG, rabbits, we use to call underground mutton when there was a food shortage back in the WW2, rabbits introduced by the English back in the 1800's, an absolute environmental disaster.
