I would be worth noting to everyone concerned that the big corps are also impacting local aquifers - setting up huge bottling operations fed from local aquifers and even draining THEM dry for all the surrounding landowners !
We recently passed a local ordinance prohibiting such operations but surrounding towns/cities must do the same because of the geo spread of those underground aquifers.
It's something all citizen should be aware of and make sure your local governments/councils are also.
