Corporations like Nestlé should not be allowed to profit from public water. Nestlé wants to drain over a million gallons of water per day from Florida’s Ginnie Springs. They will bottle this water to sell it back to Floridians and the rest of the nation.
To make matters worse, the overall health of this water has greatly declined; most recently receiving a D+. The more you pump, the less water coming from the springs — degrading the water quality even more.
We’ve fought Nestlé for years — and together, we’ve beaten the company and protected public water.
The Suwannee River Water Management District is deciding whether to renew the permit and allow Nestlé to pump over a million gallons of water per day out of the springs – an amount nearly five times greater than previous companies who have used the permit.
Sign the Petition:
Governor DeSantis and the Suwannee River Water Management District,
Please deny the renewal of the consumptive water use permit (2-041-218202-3) owned by Seven Springs Water that would allow Nestlé to draw 1.152 million gallons per day from wells near and connected to Ginnie Springs. Neither Seven Springs Water nor Nestlé owns the spring, nor do they own the water – the public does.
