Part of it is human nature of course, but part of it is also the fact that if you don't tune to their channel or read their paper, etc, then they are out of business. Honest news makes less money than news with a spin. I refer you to the following for my overall opinion on all news venues these days.

The rights are granted in order of claim. My water right goes back to something like 1902, but the town 40 miles down stream has precedence. That's not usually the EPA's end of things though.
Not enough detail to sort this one out. I note that it is all over the alternative conservative media, but neither the Casper nor Cheyenne papers has done a story. I'll be watching for more facts, because this one could go either way.

If you disturb the soil and some of that soil goes downstream, you have polluted the stream and broken the law according to the clean water act! These folks are totally out of control. Time to ask your representitive about your states rights, and landowner rights!

I suppose it depends on what type of permission the state gave him, and without seeing the actual document, I think it will be hard to know.
