Is Nestlé harming aquifers in Sacramento?
In 2013 Nestlé Waters North America used about 50 million gallons from the Sacramento municipal water supply to produce the Nestlé® Pure Life® product and for other plant operations. Our water use is a fraction of one per cent of total water demand within the city which is around 30 billion gallons a year among all users. In other words, we use just over one tenth of one percent (0.16%) of Sacramento’s total water demand as measured in 2010. If Nestlé Waters stopped operating in Sacramento tomorrow, there would be no appreciable difference in the amount of water available to other customers. Our company is subject to any restrictions, drought or otherwise, imposed on all light industrial or business customers by the city of Sacramento.
