January Bark hike video

Nestle has proposed to build a new bottled water plant in the town of Cascade Locks on the Columbia River. Nestle seeks to bottle the water from Oxbow Springs, which is currently used as the only water source for a fish hatchery specializing in the rearing of threatened and endangered fish.

On the hike, after a brief introduction by Lori Ann Burd of Bark, Julia DeGraw from Food and Water Watch described the proposal and its potential environmental and social consequences.

Video is about 24 minutes in length.

This video is taped at the Cascade Locks Industrial Park, on the rugged shore of the Columbia River.
