Nestle Water Bottling Plant Protest in South Sacramento by Darla-Tess Weaver

Protesters are trying to stop operations at the Nestle Water Bottling Plant off Florin-Perkins Road. Demonstrators gathered as early as 4:30 a.m. to stand up against the company’s water practices.

Water activists are arguing that the facility is draining up to 80 million gallons of water a year from Sacramento aquifers while the state is in a drought.

The Nestle plant manager, Shawn Edmondson, tells FOX40 they are also concerned about the drought.

“We are also a regulated facility. So anything that comes from the water board or the city of Sacramento, we will comply,” Edmondson says.
