Debate over Nestlé water permit heats up

A group of several organizations, among them the Courage Campaign Institute and The Story of Stuff Project, submitted a petition that they said was signed by 280,355 people demanding the agency carry out a “thorough and unbiased” environmental impact review before considering any request by Nestle to continue drawing water from its wells in the forest. The environmental groups argue that taking the water threatens sensitive habitat along Strawberry Creek, where the flow has dwindled during the drought.
