Though the exact fate of the CCDA water bottling facility in Mount Shasta is not known at this time, a company spokesperson said they are scheduled to cease production at the end of the year.

“Market conditions and overcapacity in the bottled water industry have led Coca Cola North America to exit their lower margin retail spring water facilities at the end of this year,” said CCDA spokesperson Ray Crockett on Friday, April 23. “We will cease production of our private customer labels and Aquarius Spring retail products.”

The decision regarding the future of Coca Cola North America’s dedicated water plants, of which Mount Shasta is one, will be made “in conjunction with a broader review of all our facilities,” Crockett said.

An update will be provided in late May as to the status of Coca Cola’s North America water bottling plants, Crockett added.

CCDA Waters, LLC, is listed as one of Siskiyou County’s major employers by the California Employment Development Department, with 50 to 99 employees.

Asked about the possibility of the Mount Shasta plant being sold, Crockett said, “I can’t tell you anything more at this time.”
