Invaluable information

Dear Editor,

With the Nestle EIR now being revised for a smaller water bottling plant, water specialists will be conducting three years of studies on our watershed to ensure that adequate supply will be available for both Nestle and McCloud residents for decades to come.

And, because these studies are starting during an abnormally dry year, this means the data that is collected in this process will show us the true possible impact of a Nestle plant during a drought period.

This information about one of our most important natural resources is invaluable in future planning for McCloud, and that is something that benefits us all.

Actual data, derived from specific on-site studies, are what should be used to properly evaluate the consequences of proposed water uses, not conjecture, guess-work, or unfounded “information.”
