5 p.m. APRIL 21ST DEADLINE: The MDEQ is still taking testimony on whether the Nestle Corporation's permit request to double the water it draws from Michigan aquifers. Nestle pays only $200/year for its permit to bottle and sell Michigan's water while people in Detroit and Flint are going without water because they can't afford to pay their water bills!
Points for Testimony:
1. This is a corporate water grab;
2. It puts wildlife that depends on the Muskegon River watershed at great risk;
3. It undermines the public water system that the citizens of Michigan rely upon.
