VICTORY!! Hood River County Votes Yes for Water!

We are elated!

I just returned home from the victory party -- the voters of Hood River County said YES! Yes, to the future of our water. Yes, to the future of their communities. And, yes, clean water is a right that we must defend.

In the coming weeks, we’ll keep you posted about what this means for the campaign to stop Nestlé from bottling the Gorge. Likely, Nestlé will not take this victory without a court battle. We’re committed to helping maintain the outcome of this historic campaign.

Did you know this has never been done before? No community who is fighting Nestlé (and there are so many!) has won a county-wide public election to stop a water bottling company from setting up business. Let’s be sure this victory can be passed on to others fighting for their water.

Please donate to Local Water Alliance today to be sure this historic campaign can defeat any challenge from Nestlé in court. Thank you for supporting this incredible effort.

P.S. As many of you know, we’ve been working on this effort for seven years, approaching every angle possible. We continue to have active litigation against the state that we hope will inform the future of our water, statewide. We’ll keep you informed in the coming weeks of how you can stay involved in this campaign. For now…celebrate!
