Campaign Background

Nestle-Enough-is-Enough-infographic.pngNestlé Waters Canada has been in the business of extracting water for profit from Wellington county for over 15 years. We believe  that Water is for Life, Not for Profit. We honour our waters as a commons, not a commodity to be bought and sold on the world market.


Too much has already been taken from Aberfoyle. Too much has been taken from their Hillsburgh well. Now Nestlé is vying for a third well near Elora on Middlebrook Rd. Enough is ENOUGH. We are in solidarity with all those around the globe who are standing together to say NO to corporate profiteering from this life giving source – our precious water.


Nestlé Waters Canada recently submitted their application to renew their Permit-To-Take-Water in Aberfoyle for an additional 10 years.

 

Enough is ENOUGH


Tell Kathleen Wynne to say NO to Nestlé.


We will be requesting no more than a two year permit in Aberfoyle in order to assist a phase out of this permit and will also will be requesting no new well at Middlebrook.


Our technical advisor, Dr. Hugh Whiteley has observed that the most recent Annual Report showed that the average water level in the Middle Gasport aquifer that supplies the Nestlé production well has declined about 1.5 m from 2011 to 2015 while Nestlé’s water taking increased 33 % over the same period. This decline in water level is suggestive of a disturbance of the equilibrium between aquifer recharge and water discharge from the aquifer.
