The state of Michigan has given the OK to Nestle, to pump more groundwater for its Ice Mountain brand. According to the Associated Press, on Monday, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality ruled that the company’s application meets with state standards. The company had been permitted to withdraw 250 gallons a minute from an underground aquifer in wester Michigan’s Osceola Township, but that amount will now increase to 400. The township originally denied a permit application to build a pumping station, but a Mason county judge has decided otherwise.
