No new water permit for Nestlé spin-off!
From 2018-2020 alone, Nestlé stole 173 million more gallons than it was permitted to do. Even as average Californians face restrictions amid the state’s second dry year in a row, BlueTriton is drawing upwards of 25 times as much water as is legal. The permit costs a pittance and allows the company to resell the public’s water under its Arrowhead brand for a huge profit.
That's why we're telling the U.S. Forest Service:
I believe it is your obligation to end Nestlé / BlueTriton’s occupation of these public lands once and for all. In addition to denying any new permit application by BlueTriton, I ask you to order Nestlé to both remove its pipeline and other infrastructure on these public lands and to pay for the restoration of the Strawberry Canyon ecosystem. This commitment to removal and restoration is particularly critical now, with California likely entering a period of extended and profound drought, which will only intensify the wildfire dangers and other threats to this fragile ecosystem.
