E-M:/ **Correction***Evart Water Sale

Enviro-Mich message from David Holtz <dholtz@cleanwater.org>

Today's news release about the Evart, MI proposal to sell Michigan's Great Lakes basin waters to the Nestle's Corporation mentioned that Gov. Engler in 2001 invoked the federal Water Resources Development Act to block a similar proposed municipal water sale in Webster, New York. It should be noted, however, that the news release referred to the Webster proposal as a "municipal water bottling project", when in fact the Mayor of Webster offered to sell 2 million gallons a day of the city's water to any takers, according to a report by Time Inc.
