Last fall, the state declined to take up a court case against Nestle. The food and beverage company wanted to expand already monstrous (and free) withdrawals of our water. The state posited it wanted better laws, but those that took the issue to court filed incorrectly.
Coincidentally, Michigan’s Water Use Advisory Council released its recommendations on how Michigan law should require water to be withdrawn a month after the decision.
Included in the Council are Tom Zimnicki – MEC program director for groundwater, surface water and agriculture – and Bryan Burroughs – executive director of Michigan Trout Unlimited and member group representative on MEC’s board.
Join Tom, Bryan and MEC President/CEO Conan Smith as they discuss what the Council is, how it works and its plans for more sustainable and equitable water withdrawals.
