Nestle drops spring-water well plan in Newaygo Co.
MONROE TOWNSHIP -- Nestle Waters North American is backing out of plans to put a spring-water well in northern Newaygo County.
The company announced Thursday that area in Monroe Township does not meet its criteria for development.
Some local citizens voiced their concerns about the plans during a meeting in January.
Nestle wanted to pump groundwater from two sites, including one believed to be near the headwaters of a state-protected trout stream.
In March 2005, the Evart City Council approved a 10-year water purchase agreement with Nestle in its community.
