Protect our Water

Protect Our Water

Nestlé has over extracted one billion litres of water on expired permits.

One billion litres.

How is it possible that the Liberal government is allowing bottled water companies to deplete our natural water sources by taking 7.6M liters of water a day with expired permits?

The government must fix water taking rules to put water for people and communities first.

Public drinking water for communities should have priority access to water over commercial and industrial users. To do this, we should:

1. Fix the Permit To Take Water process to put public drinking water for communities first.
2. Raise the water taking fee to properly fund sustainable water management.
3. Take action to reduce plastic pollution and the cost associated with disposing/recycling plastic bottles.
