Nestlé Adding to California Drought

Story of Stuff Project
Monday, 4th July 2016

While California is going through a disastrous drought, Nestlé are extracting 50-150 million gallons of water a year, from San Bernardino National Forest.

Nestlé's permit ran out in 1988 and yet they are still extracting as much water as they want.

The U.S. Forest Service only receives $524 a year in payment from Nestlé.

The locals are seriously worried about Strawberry Creek drying up, which would be detrimental to surrounding wildlife.
