Stop Nestle Corporation From Pumping Water From Ginnie Springs

Nestle Waters Corporation wants to pump 1.1 million gallons of water per day from Ginnie Springs, and the Sante Fe river system. They want to take our public water, and sell it back to the public for a profit. This is an ecological disaster waiting to happen, as the river system is a diverse ecosystem, as well as one of the most beautiful recreation areas in Florida.

"[W]e have an ethical issue with our state putting large sums of money into conservation practices and recharge projects on the Santa Fe River and then, at the same time, counteracting this action by fomenting the free extraction of a publicly owned natural resource by a for-profit company," wrote Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson and Jim Tatum, from the conservation group Our Santa Fe River, in a column for the Gainesville Sun. "Essentially, taxpayers are funding replenishment of the aquifer and then allowing Nestlé to take it out and sell it back to us."
