For years, SumOfUs members like you have been fighting Nestlé’s corporate water grab. But now that Nestlé has sold its North America bottling business, there is a new water thief in town: BlueTriton.
BlueTriton could be even more dangerous than Nestlé. The company has just ignored a “cease and desist” order from water regulators, and is continuing to steal millions of gallons of water from public lands in San Bernardino, California.
The drought in California is hitting extreme levels, and the state's fire season gets worse every year. That’s why it’s more important than ever to protect the San Bernardino National Forest water supply from BlueTriton’s greed.
Sign this petition to stop BlueTriton from pumping out water for bottling that is needed to help prevent deadly forest fires.
Together we can shine a spotlight on BlueTriton’s sneaky water thievery, and put a stop to its unauthorized water removal once and for all.
The US Forest Service gave Nestlé a permit to occupy public lands, but that permit does not transfer to BlueTriton. If the US Forest Service denies BlueTriton’s permit and orders the company to remove all bottling infrastructure from public lands, the company will no longer be able to keep extracting water from the national forest.
We will hand deliver this petition to the US Forest Service headquarters in Washington, DC. But in order to grab their attention, we need 100,000 signatures.
Will you add your name to demand that the US Forest Service protect the San Bernardino National Forest’s life-saving water supply?
SumOfUs members have gone head to head with Nestlé all over the world and won. Together we forced them to sell all of their North America water assets. And we will win against our new foe, too.
If we can convince the US Forest Service to deny BlueTriton’s permit to occupy public lands for water extraction, it will set a precedent across North America for protecting water from corporate greed.
