FLOOD the Water Managers with Postcards

On Tuesday the Judge recommended approval of the Seven Springs/Nestle Consumptive Use Permit.
Administrative Law Judge Chisenhall rejected arguments made by the Suwannee River Water Management District and recommended that the District Governing Board approve the Seven Springs/Nestle Consumptive Use Permit. In his ruling, ALJ Chisenhall stated that Seven Springs could only bottle water at the adjacent High Springs bottling facility. If Seven Springs wishes to transport water to any other Nestle facility, including the bottling plant in Madison County, Seven Springs would need to apply for a permit modification.

The Seven Springs/Nestle consumptive use permit will now be considered by the SRWMD Governing Board.

  1. In solidarity! Our group “Un-bottle and Protect Chaffee County Water” in Colorado is also fighting a Nestle permit to suck and truck pristine water from Ruby Mountain Springs to be bottled in plastic. Nestle does not keep their promises! We urge a no vote! Un-bottle and Protect Ginnie Springs!

  2. I am a resident of Three Rivers in Fort White Florida. I moved my family here from New York State for the beauty and bounty of nature right in walking distance from my house. The rape by big corporations of our world famous springs is a disgrace. You may think the springs are forever and can not be sucked dry, but you are wrong. Please do not support the “money talks” psychology shared by the short sighted business men.
