Nestle Pays Only $524 to Extract 27,000,000 Gallons of California Drinking Water
Deer Canyon is another Nestle location where they drew water from, 76 million gallons to be exact, in 2014- an increase from 2013’s 56 million-gallon draw.
There is little doubt that the collection of this much water will have detrimental effects on the ecosystem and her numerous endangered and threatened species, but we can’t prove it because those studies were halted before they had a chance to start.
More from the article:
“In fact, the review process necessary to renew Nestle’s antiquated permit met a similarly enigmatic termination: once planning stages made apparent the hefty price tag and complicated steps said review would entail, the review was simply dropped. Completely. Without any new stipulations or stricter regulations added to the expired permit that Nestle was ostensibly following anyway — though, obviously, that remains an open question.”
Nestle paid just over $500 dollars last year to take much-needed water from the people, land, and animals of California so they could make tens of billions of dollars. It’s time to boycott Nestle waters and ALL their other products until they are held accountable for their actions.
