Nestlé, one of the world’s largest corporations, has proposed a controversial bottled water project for Cascade Locks, Hood River County’s second largest city.
The project would be Nestlé’s first attempt at a bottled water facility in Oregon, and would set a dangerous precedent that Hood River County is willing to allow our water to be packaged into millions of plastic bottles and sent out of the County on the backs of trucks.
The Water Protection Ballot Measure would prevent Nestlé’s project, but it is by no means just meant to stop the Nestlé project. More importantly, the measure is a way to set the precedent that Hood River County values our water and that we will not sell it off to water exporters wishing to profit at the expense of our water security and future.
