Oregon Man Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail — for Collecting Rainwater on His Property

A rural Oregon man was punished Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in penalties because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.Gary Harrington of Eagle issue, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson County (Ore.) Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 regulation for having what state water managers called “three illicit reservoirs” on his property – and for loading the reservoirs with rainwater and snowfall runoff.

“The government is bullying,” Harrington told CNSNews.com in an interview Thursday.

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and pass away and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies. So, we as Americans, we need to stand on our legal privileges, on our rights as citizens and suspend strong. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

The court has granted Harrington two weeks to report to the Jackson County Jail to start assisting his judgment.

A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.

Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson County (Ore.) Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 law for having what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property – and for filling the reservoirs with rainwater and snow runoff.

“The government is bullying,” Harrington told CNSNews.com in an interview Thursday.

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies. So, we as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

The court has given Harrington two weeks to report to the Jackson County Jail to begin serving his sentence.
