Tell Nestlé to leave our water well enough alone. | SumOfUs
Nestlé conditionally purchased a water bottling facility in Ontario
that can draw 1,300 litres of water a minute from a well so deep it
punctures the bedrock. Residents are rightly worried -- an environmental
science professor is calling it "the stupidest, short-sighted, most criminal use of water" he's ever seen.
We already scored a major victory against Nestlé in BC this summer -- let's make sure Elora, Ontario isn't next.
Tell the Ontario Government to ban corporate water permits until the township can produce a water plan. The residents of Elora will need this water. The town currently uses 1.7 million litres of water a day -- and Nestlé will take 1.6 million litres a day under this plan.
