Outrage ensues as Michigan grants Nestle permit to extract 200,000 gallons of water per day

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) granted Nestlé Waters North America, Inc. (Nestlé) a permit to increase its groundwater withdrawal for the purpose of bottling drinking water, according to a MDEQ statement on April 2.

Nestlé is authorized to begin withdrawing water at a rate up to 400 gallons per minute from the White Pine Springs well located near Evart, Michigan. Withdrawal may begin once the monitoring plan is in place and the baseline data is collected.

The MDEQ determined that the application met the requirements for approval under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act.

However, more than 80,000 people have said they oppose the proposal, while only 75 people said they are in favor of it.
