"Nestlé filed an emergency application in the Court of Appeals on December 15, 2003. The Court of Appeals granted Nestle a stay order that allowed Nestle to pump at 250 gallons per minute (gpm) on a monthly average during the appeal. After hearing the evidence, the Trial Court found that a stream, lake, and wetlands were diminished and impaired at 160 to 170 gpm. Since the Court of Appeals granted the stay order, Nestle has pumped 250 gpm based on the average, but has exceeded this limit for significant periods of time."


250*60*24 = 360,000 gal/day

I'm looking at an ethanol plant that will withdraw 731,000 gallons/day
from a local surface waterbody and discharge about 500,000 gallons/day to
the air (which essentially removes it from the Great Lakes Basin).

How do those water withdrawals compare with those controversial bottled water plants
in Northern Michigan?
