Regarding Nestle Waters’ Decision Regarding Wacissa River Spring Source

July 27, 2011

“For more than a year, Nestle Waters North America has invested significant time and resources into a careful scientific evaluation of a spring source along the Wacissa River to support the operation of its Madison County manufacturing facility. After a thorough review of the data collected from the potential source, the science concluded this particular spring was not viable for the company’s use.

Nestle Waters has a strong record as a responsible steward of Florida’s natural resources and a committed community partner. As an organization that has long been committed to environmental sustainability issues and the future of Florida’s waters, Associated Industries of Florida applauds their methodical, science-based approach to determining the viability of this spring source, as well as their honest, transparent engagement with the local community.”
