Nestlé has been allowed to take water from the San Bernardino National Forest for years on an expired permit. This permit expired back in 1988 and a federal judge in California has just tossed out all allegations for this incident. They are able to continue, without consequences, to pipe out water in California despite the drought.
Courage Campaign Institute, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Story of Stuff Project had all filed a lawsuit against the company in 2015 and this was the result of it. With this ruling, Nestlé will continue to take thousands of gallons of public water a day.
