Start Date: 5/9/2017 -  
Activists continued to protest Nestlé’s use of springs in southern California for its Arrowhead bottled water as drought and the company’s sourcing of water on public land continues to rile the public. Of the company’s 40 water sources in the U.S., 11 are in California. Nestlé captures about 30 million gallons of water annually and pays the U.S. Forest Service just $524 for the permit.
