Nestlé Waters Canada has its largest Canadian bottling facility located in Aberfoyle, just south of Guelph. In 2011 Nestlé Waters Canada applied for and was granted a 5 year renewal of their Permit-to-Take Water (PTTW) allowing them to take a maximum of 3.6 million litres per day of our pristine ground water and package into small plastic bottles.
Wellington Water Watchers strongly opposed this permit for the reasons stated in the Wellington Water Watchers Technical Submission. This is wasteful use of our community’s precious water resources and a wasteful use of our planet’s resources. As citizens of this watershed, we are lessening our resilience for our needs and our children’s future water needs.
