ELORA – Those opposed to Nestlé Waters’ plans to increase its water taking from a well just outside of Elora aren’t going to let the issue fade.
Roughly 100 people showed up Sunday afternoon, gathering at a farm on Middlebrook Road for a rally then marching to the Middlebrook Well where Nestlé hopes to eventually start pumping bottled water.
“This is a really pinnacle and important day. I think it’s one of the most important days of the campaign,” said Mike Nagy, chairperson of the Wellington Water Watchers who organized the event.

Save Our Water rally stresses the need for bottled water to be an issue in the provincial election next June.
The moratorium on new permits for the bottled water industry may have moved the issue to the back burner. But Guelph’s highly-motivated anti-bottled water movement plans on making sure it doesn’t stay there.
Roughly 50 people turned out Friday for a Save Our Water rally in Downtown Guelph organized by Wellington Water Watchers and Save Our Water.
Thursday, Sept. 13, 6:30 – 9:00 at the Elora Community Centre.
