I’m working on something much bigger, so this will be short and sweet:

Nestlé Waters North America has decided to withdraw its proposal to build a bottling facility in McCloud.

via Nestl̩ Waters ends pursuit of McCloud facility РMount Shasta, CA РMount Shasta Herald.

Bye, Nestle.

One down, two more to go (Klamath dams & Westlands).

UPDATE: I’ll certainly write more about this development next week; it’s the culmination of a lot of work on the part of a lot of people, and it deserves a few more nouns, verbs and adjectives. Also, Nestle still owns the old mill site in the middle of McCloud – anyone want to buy, protect, or use for sustainable development a 240 acre chunk in the middle of trout heaven?
