The Cascade Locks City Council will soon be asked to decide on a proposed Nestlé plant that would bottle 100 million gallons of water per year from the town's aquifer and nearby Department of Fish and Wildlife Oxbow Spring.

But first, a cautionary tale from a small, Michigan town that wound up with over a million dollars in legal (and hired-expert) debt to pay off as a result of an eight-year, multi-court legal battle with Nestlé."

Isn’t it time we had an effective EPA, ‘The Economic Protection Agency’?

In the end, the town opted "not to ask for reimbursement for legal costs" in the settlement with Nestlé.  More importantly, the community action group that arose from the  focusing on forcing either a complete stoppage or a monitored, reduced water-draw from the private property pump site controlled by Nestlé.
