Citizens and members of Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation gathered outside the DEQ offices in Lansing to deliver over 360,000 petition signatures from the organization SumOfUS. People around the world, and 66,000 in Michigan say “NO to the Nestle Water Grab”. The petition called on the DEQ to protect the Muskegon River Watershed from Nestlé’s potential increase of water taking from 150 gallons per minute to 400 gpm of groundwater that feeds creeks, that flow to the Muskegon River, which flows to Lake Michigan.
