This paper is concerned with the rights of individuals to withdraw water from permeable materials beneath the land surface, under the basic laws of the States in which they reside. It does not concern itself with limited-purpose statutes that seek only to prevent or abate pollution of naturally fresh waters, or to preclude waste of water; or that require well drillers to be licensed, or logs of wells to be filed with some administrative agency. Neither does it concern itself with certain municipal and local regulations that, to some extent, limit the freedom of action by individuals within those local jurisdictions.
