Water bottling companies are making handsome profits from bottling and selling California's water, but these companies are not required to disclose how much water they are using.
California is facing water scarcity, and the state is implementing restrictions for residential water use in some areas. In order for California to be able to properly manage its water resources, we need to know how much water companies are extracting and the environmental impact of their water use.
We have a chance to do something about this situation, and you can help. Assembly members Felipe Fuentes and Mary Hayashi along with Senator Ellen Corbett have introduced a bill that will require water bottling companies to disclose how much water they're using. The bill just passed the legislature and has landed on the Governor's desk.
He vetoed similar legislation last session, don't let it happen again. Ask Governor Schwarzenegger to sign A.B. 301 and protect California's water.
