Who Owns the Creek on Your Land?

So, you think you can prepare your little getaway for the coming doom and gloom days, right? After all, it is your land, so who is to say you can't damn the creek to make a pond, or divert water for irrigation? Why, the EPA, of course.
IF they own that land, what about the adjacent property that allows them to inspect their water?

The California State Water Resources Board did an aerial survey of all ponds in our county about 5 years ago. Anyone who had water being diverted into the pond from a creek or stream had to block it off. They actually drove around to each ranch and inspected them. You are not allowed to store water for more than 30 days. The government is completely out of control and I fear it is so far reaching that we will never get back any of the great freedoms this country was founded upon.
Sad, but true. They call it an "Administrative Inspection" or some other nonsense. No warrant required.
