McCloud Watershed Council Offering Free Pizza Dinner Prior to 2/18 Nestle Meeting

This was forwarded to me from the McCloud Watershed Council:


We’d like to share details with you about the upcoming February 18th Nestle Community Meeting and our Free Pre-Meeting Dinner.

You may have seen ads in the Mt. Shasta Herald about Nestlé’s second community meeting in McCloud. Dave Palais announced at the February 9th McCloud Community services District meeting that Nestle has hired a second third-party facilitator, Joan Chaplik, from a company called MIG, Inc. (  to facilitate this meeting.

Dave Palais and his manager Brendan O’Rourke (Director of Natural Resources for Nestle Waters North America) will be in attendance to present the company’s revised project proposal, followed by a public comment period.  According to Nestlé’s ad, “The purpose of these meetings is to provide the public information about the proposed project and to receive direct feedback from the community on the proposal.”

Recently the Services District Board has decided to move forward in talking with Nestle about a potential water bottling plant.  This public meeting offers all citizens a golden opportunity to give their input regarding a possible bottling facility, and to pose meaningful questions to Nestle representatives.

Please help us spread the word and encourage our community members to participate in this important meeting; every voice counts!

  1. I really am hoping that McCloud does the right thing tonight and refuses to privatize their life source… as if the planet does not have enough going on!? The last thing anyone needs is another bottled water plant…I would like to know if Nestle is studying the affects they are having all the way down stream from the McCloud.

  2. Desi: This isn’t a meeting of the McCloud Services District, so the town can’t/won’t decide to give Nestle the boot. It’s a Nestle dog & pony show – one designed to tout their “new improved” plan and all the monitoring work they’re doing (work they didn’t do the first time around, and were forced to do by opposition groups). At some point, you’ve gotta wonder why Nestle – which has turned both McCloud and Fryeburg into PR disasters – doesn’t cut its losses and move on.

  3. If Nestle is buying food I would NOT eat it.
    Too easy to make you sick and unable to fight. This food poisoning tactic dates back to early nineteen hundreds and of couse, beyond.
