we need a county ballot measure to ban commercial water bottling in the county. We can stop BTB/Nestle from building a bottling plant and trucking away our precious mountain water resource.

we need the State governor to direct the Department of Fish and Wildlife to stop an exchange of water rights to prevent water bottling operations.
