Nestle water plan results in Colorado Springs water battle

 

A water fight is underway at Colorado Springs, one involving Nestle’ Waters North America, a firm that wants to pump up to 65 million gallons of groundwater out of the Upper Arkansas River Valley and sent it to Denver for bottling.

“We don’t need Nestlé to bottle our water and sell it back to us in plastic bottles,” Jennifer Swacina, co-founder of Unbottle and Protect Chaffee County Water, a group formed in opposition to the Nestlé plan, said during the meeting held on Zoom.
