Likewise - "high water marks" or variances thereof (ordinary high water mark, etc) that become property of the jurisdiction or public, etc.

Know of a farmer in South Carolina that had a flooded field caused by a debris blocked stream / drainage path (blocked by storm carried debris after hurricane Hugo) that ran past his property. He fought the county for many months to get it cleared. A month turned into a year, etc. Finally, out of frustration, he cleared it and reclaimed his flooded farmland. Can of worms!

His field was, by virtue of the standing water being there for whatever length of time, declared a wetland. It was argued the the "new" HWM was a OHWM and that he in fact damaged a wetland that must be returned to its "natural" state.

Not only did they prevent him from farming the land, and add it to a protected zoning type, but they spent a small fortune building a damn to return the water to the high water mark caused by the blocked stream.

I used to hunt on the property next door and remember the story being a big local deal back then (early 90's).

Miners might say that it was the government who was happy to destroy the country as acceptable collateral damage for their main aim of destroying the unions and heavy industry generally. Anyway, we are straying too near politics for this forum.

Same problem on the "warming" thread, almost everything is political to some degree, the rules need to be flexible on this point, only when an individual post becomes mostly governed by politics should it not be allowed IMO.

The title of this thread is " Domestic mains voltage and frequency"

I see the OP has made no further contributions having dropped the bomb.
