E-M:/ A "Small" Withdrawal



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from "Andrew Guy" <andy@mlui.org>

Hi folks,

A proposal by the Perrier Group of America to withdraw groundwater from
Michigan raises a number of critical questions about the Great Lakes fresh
water supply and citizen conservation efforts.

With so much heavy artillery bombarding the Great Lakes bunker, the
company's plan to withdraw, for free, 720,000 gallons of water per day from
two central Michigan counties is like lobbing in one more live grenade.
Right now, that grenade threatens to blow any water conservation goals
Michigan - and possibly the Great Lakes basin - may have right out of the
water.

For more information, please follow the link below to an article on the
Michigan Land Use Institute's web page.

Any questions, comments, or concerns please contact me.
