Nestlé Taps Into 237 Million Gallon Drinking Water Initiative

The CVWD’s project, which will cost an estimated $4.7 million, is anticipated to produce an additional 237 million gallons of drinking water each year. The new plant’s treatment of the wells will create a combined output of 7,400 acre-feet annually.

In the early 2000s, Nestlé purchased an Arrowhead water-bottling plant in Ontario.
