Help put the brakes on Nestle's Water Bottling Plant!
by Water for All
Thursday Sep 7th, 2006 11:12 AM
For nearly three years, the people of McCloud, a small community situated at the foot of Mount Shasta in northern California, have kept a Nestle water bottling plant and distribution center at bay. But the Swiss-based food and beverage giant continues to push forward its plans for a 1-million square foot plant that would drain nearly two million gallons of water every day for less than 1/64 of a cent per gallon!
Dear Water Activist,

For nearly three years, the people of McCloud, a small community situated at the foot of Mount Shasta in northern California, have kept a Nestle water bottling plant and distribution center at bay. But the Swiss-based food and beverage giant continues to push forward its plans for a 1-million square foot plant that would drain nearly two million gallons of water every day for less than 1/64 of a cent per gallon!

Now, the Draft Environmental Impact Review of the project is open for comment. It downplays the dangers of the plant, its impacts on the community, and violates public trust protections of water. You have an opportunity to speak out before the comment period ends on Tuesday, September 12.

Tell the Siskiyou County planning department that you want all the impacts of this project thoroughly analyzed in order to protect the environment and water resources. They must do everything they can to protect the community's water and not turn it over to Nestle to exploit for profit.

Please click here to take action!
