I'm tempted to buy it, take a week to go out there and build a swale & bury a cistern, and then let it sit for a few years to see what happens.

Great initiative, maybe there is something similar, but for Europe?

Great price! Water will be a big decider, western states have some strict riparian rights laws. But, a quick look at the local airport, Winnemucca Municipal, shows at least two cropduster planes, so there is definitely agricultural activity in the area.

Yes, I've looked into that for many western states that I am considering; but it seems that only Colorado prevents landowners from earthworks that would harvest rainwater that falls on their own property.  There's no natural water flow near the property, so there doesn't seem to be a watershed restriction.  Seems like I would have no issues with a swale & a buried cistern.
