ANNOUNCEMENT – NO to Nestle Public Forum
Wednesday, March 14, 6:30 – 9 pm at Central PA Institute of Science and Technology (CPI), 540 N. Harrison Road, Pleasant Gap
Nestle wants to extract a massive amount of groundwater per day from Spring Creek Watershed and build a plastic water bottling plant in either Spring or Benner Township.
Concerned citizens have organized a public forum about the issues. Although Nestle has been investigating this water source for years, they and the Spring Creek Water Authority waited until it was a done deal to make it public.
Small towns all over the country have experienced Nestle’s predatory behavior and have had to fight back, often at great expense (Osceola, MI; Fryeburg, ME; San Bernardino National Forest, CA; Hood River County, OR; Kunkletown, PA). See the link below about Kunkletown, PA’s battle against Nestle.
NOTE: Nestle has announced a Nestle-sponsored public meeting for Monday, March 12 at CPI.
If you’ve only got time for one meeting next week, come to the Wednesday, March 14 forum organized by locals, where your voice will be heard and the truth will be spoken.
Please bring your questions, concerns and your reusable water bottle!
Sponsored by the Sierra Club Moshannon Group and Nittany Valley Environmental Coalition. Participants include ClearWater Conservancy and Food and Water Watch.
