This Muskegon Chronicle Sunday editorial hits the nail on the head about the state's water use laws that allow Nestle to win permission for a second spring water well in Muskegon County.
We disagree, and not very respectfully, with those who
claim the Great Lakes and water resources in Michigan
aren't endangered by the leaky water diversion laws
currently on the books.
That law is being pumped to advantage by the Nestle Waters,
which recently won conditional permission to open a second
spring water well north of Muskegon County.
A gaping hole in the water use laws enacted by the
Legislature last year allows giant international
conglomerates to siphon off underground water supplies at
rates up to 1.5 million gallons daily.http://www.mlive.com/news/muchronicle/index.ssf?/base/news-1/117044910515210.xml&coll=8
