Ice Mountain announced the completion of a new well in Bromley Park. The well provides a much-needed source of water for residents and visitors who utilize Bromley Park.
MECOSTA, Michigan – October 1, 2019 – Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water, part of Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA), today announced the completion of a new community well in Bromley Park. Construction of the well was made possible by a donation of approximately $20,000 from NWNA.
The donation funded drilling costs, construction of a cement walkway around the well to provide safe access and protection from erosion, installation of parking posts, and the hiring of an environmental engineering firm to support the Village of Mecosta in obtaining necessary permits and to provide project oversight. Construction of the well began in May 2019, and was successfully completed in time to make it usable by the end of summer into this fall.
“This is a great addition to our community and we are grateful for the generous donation by Nestlé Waters North America,” said Steven Bishop, President of the Village of Mecosta. “The company is not just another local business. It sponsors and supports events, including those held in Bromley Park, that make a difference in the community.”
Local residents consider Bromley Park the center of activity in Mecosta for local residents, particularly during the annual summer concert series. Local leaders and the volunteer group Mecosta Revitalization determined there was a need for a well to support community programs, and asked Ice Mountain to help.
“We were pleased to answer the call to ensure a clean, fresh water supply for the Village of Mecosta by funding the construction of the new well,” said Arlene Anderson-Vincent, Natural Resource Manager for Nestlé Waters North America. “We hope the water will be enjoyed by residents and visitors for many years to come.”
The well provides a much-needed source of water for residents and visitors who utilize Bromley Park.
“The new well gives us an opportunity for more children to enjoy the playground and activities like the summer youth art program,” said Bonnie Shaw, a director at the Mecosta County Youth & Family Center. “It’s really going to make a difference for the kids and the adults who love Bromley Park.”
For Linda Howard, a longtime resident and civic leader in Mecosta, the well is an excellent example of a business continuing to give back to the community.
"Ice Mountain has been a valued partner to the Village of Mecosta for many years and we greatly appreciate their generous contribution of the well for Bromley Park," said Linda Howard, Mecosta Revitalization member, Village of Mecosta Deputy Clerk, and County Commissioner.
