Where do Canadians draw the line? Save Our Water is drawing the line at groundwater being extracted cheaply and sold expensively. We are drawing the line at a finite natural resource being pulled from under our feet by the world’s largest food company. We are drawing the line for our kids and their kids. Because what Nestlé does might be legal, but it’s not right.

WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT, NOT A COMMODITY.
OUR WATER IS NOT FOR SALE.

Nestlé Waters is systematically buying water wells across the world to commercialize groundwater. Here in the township of Centre Wellington, they are planning to extract 1.6 million litres of groundwater every day from our local aquifer. Our communities rely on that water. It's time to say no.

The Facts

8 FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Nestlé Canada Inc. announced an agreement today to sell it's Nestlé Pure Life bottled water business to Ice River Springs, a privately owned company headquartered in Shelburne, Ontario. Save Our Water remains committed to safeguarding the Middlebrook well and protecting our community's groundwater from any and all large scale commercial water bottling interests. We will continue to oppose new permits to take water for the purpose of commercial water bottling.
Ontario Proposes to Further Protect Water Resources
The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has posted its Water Quantity Management Program on the Environmental Registry of Ontario and is seeking public input! They propose to listen to municipalities when it comes to commercial water bottling while considering the environment in granting permits for water taking. Public comments are open until August 2, 2020.
