Newsclip®: [Business] Oregon county says no to Nestle water-bottling plant - Houston Chronicle

"(AP) — Voters in an Oregon county imposed a ban on commercial water bottling on Tuesday, killing a plan in which Nestle would have built a water-bottling plant in the job-scarce town of Cascade Locks in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The Swiss transnational company's plan has drawn opposition from orchard owners, Native American tribes, some residents and others. Farm and orchard owners said water bottlers would compete with the needs of the growing population of the town of Hood River, the county seat, and its shrinking water supply. [...] Native Americans cited global warming, salmon die-offs and water conservation as reasons to reject the bottling plant.",
