Nestlé’s decision to move forward with a water bottling plant in Sacramento could have a bearing on its plans for a facility in McCloud.
“In four to six weeks, we will let McCloud know if we will continue with our (McCloud) plans,” company representative Dave Palais said Monday night, noting that a recent article incorrectly stated that the company would be dropping its McCloud proposal. 
Speaking during Monday night’s McCloud Community Services District meeting, Palais told the board that the company would be looking closely at how the Sacramento facility would impact their regional market and ultimately affect their plans to pursue a McCloud water bottling facility. He cited numerous issues as factors that will be explored, including the current lackluster economy and transportation costs.
Palais explained that  the Sacramento plant will bottle up to 150 acre-feet of water annually, and that it will purchase its water from the City of Sacramento as well as trucking in water from springs located in the Sierra foothills. 
The Sacramento plant will bottle water under the Pure Life and Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water brands, and it  will be distributed primarily to its customers in northern California.
