Nestlé Waters uses 0.001% of the total freshwater withdrawal worldwide.
In Canada, the bottled water industry uses 0.02% of permitted water compared to thermal power generation (63%), manufacturing (15%), municipalities (9.5%), agriculture (9%) and mining (1%).
All our water sources in Ontario are based in Wellington County located in the Grand River Watershed. The bottled water industry only uses 0.6% of the available water from this watershed.
If the source at the Middlebrook site meets our requirements without any significant negative impacts related to this operation of the well, we will seek a permit that allows us to draw 300 gallons per minute, which is the most recent permitted rate for this well.
