Despite considerable concern and opposition in the community, on September 28th this year Nestle Waters’ permit to take 1.1 million litres of water per day from a well near Hillsburgh, Ontario was renewed. Since then, Nestle Waters has filed an appeal that challenges provisions of the permit that would place mandatory restrictions on its water-taking operations during periods of drought.
Join us on Thursday November 1 for a public screening of the film Bottled Life along with a short presentation from Nick Green of Friends of Hillsburgh Water on their ongoing efforts to challenge Nestle’s water taking in Hillsburgh.
When: Thursday Nov. 1, 2012: 8:00 p.m.
