Legislators concerned about the state water issues have just sent a bill (AB 301) to the governor’ desk. If passed, this legislation would force water bottlers to reveal exactly how much of our water they are taking. This is commonsense legislation for a state with huge water problems — after all, how can we begin to properly manage our water resources if we don’t know how much industry is taking?
Some water bottlers are are taking their water directly from our municipal water supply and others are drawing from springs on private land that can also impact local water sources and wells.
