OVERVIEW


Save Our Water is a group of residents who are determined that Nestlé, or any other large-scale commercial water bottler, will never receive a permit to take water from the Middlebrook Well and that groundwater must be held as a public trust, now and for future generations. If granted a permit, 379,000 million litres of local water could be trucked away every day from a community where local water sources are already at risk.

ABOUT US


Working with water allies and creating awareness for the campaign since 2015, Save Our Water has persisted in its purpose to protect groundwater from large-scale extraction for commercial water bottling.

 

The Save Our Water residents group is opposed to large-scale water taking for moral, ethical and environmental reasons and is comprised of lawyers, hydrogeologists, financial professionals, environmental scientists, students, business owners, young families, artists, retirees, faith groups, farmers, and more. Most of us are from Centre Wellington. A growing number are from across Ontario and outside Canada.

 

Save Our Water is committed to defending water. This fight is not just about one little town – it is about all the little towns across Canada and around the world fighting to keep precious water resources out of private hands.
