OPPOSE Permit Number: 2-041-218202-3

To stop Nestle’s newest American water bottling permit, go directly to the decision makers, the Suwannee River Water Management District staff.

When writing your comment, please make your points around the law, specifically FS 373, Part 2
http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0300-0399/0373/0373PARTIIContentsIndex.html

Florida Statutes require that water permits be "consistent with the public interest." Obviously the public is not OK with this permit being renewed. Currently there are 2,363 formal objections written towards this permit on permitting.sjrwmd.com as well as many online petitions and angry comments.
http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0300-0399/0373/Sections/0373.223.html

"The overall water conservation goal of the state is to prevent and reduce wasteful, uneconomical, impractical, or unreasonable use of water resources." The flow of this spring has an F rating right now.

Permits must be consistent with a reasonable-beneficial use, according to Florida law.

http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0300-0399/0373/Sections/0373.223.html

“Reasonable-beneficial use” means the use of water in such quantity as is necessary for economic and efficient utilization for a purpose and in a manner which is both reasonable and consistent with the public interest.

It's very important that your comments address these issues specifically, as these decisions are made not because of emotions or logic, but because of written guidelines in law.

Should probably look into the 99 year effective date of this contract as well:

The oil and gas industry spent $1.4 billion in the past decade telling the federal government climate change didn’t exist.
