"Nestle spokeswoman Kerrin Garripoli said that potential withdrawal would support two bottling lines and amount to less than 1 percent of the average daily discharge of Spring Creek at Milesburg, which is about 25 percent of how much water Corning used for its operation."

Who or what is Corning? It is the only mention of the name in the article. In this age of media consolidation, I wonder if all the editors have been fired?

Corning had a CRT manufacturing plant in state college. The division was bought and ultimately moved out

More extraction of state resources for private company profits. With no compensation to the commonwealth.

All so we can fill the earth with plastic bottles. Who will pay to clean them up? ....look in the mirror.

The water was used for cooling in their glass plant. Which was a non-consumptive use. (Except maybe some loss through evaporation.) The return flow went into the upper end of Logan Branch, which is a tributary to Spring Creek.

A bottling plant is a CONSUMPTIVE use of water. Whatever quantity of water they use, the amount of water flowing down Spring Creek would be reduced by that quantity.

So the comparison of water usage with Corning's makes no sense.

I find it helpful to convert withdrawals expressed in gallons per unit of time to millions of gallons per day and then multiply by 1.5 to convert to cubic feet per second.

They got the heave-ho aka thumbs down in Oregon, Maine, California and mostly recently in the Poconos here, here, here , here, and here.

From the article:

"They identify small, rural communities, many times economically depressed, that they think they can roll over and who they think might be susceptible to promises of jobs and tax revenue," he said.


The company is looking at sites in Spring and Benner Townships in Centre County, he said, and the conceptual plan could include a pipeline between the spring source and bottling facility, which would save on transportation costs.

"Every gallon of water that is taken out of a natural system for bottled water is a gallon of water that doesn't flow down a stream, that doesn't support a natural ecosystem," said Peter Gleick, author of "Bottled and Sold."

Nestlé has faced protests over its water collection in California because of the drought and the fact that this site is on public land. While the company takes about 30 million gallons each year, they pay just $524 to the U.S. Forest Service for the permit.

Isn't flowing water in the Commonwealth owned by every Pennsylvanian?

Where is my tax revenue and jobs?

For some reason I thought Corning got their water from Bellefonte.

The news article says Nestle in talking to Spring Township. After a quick search, it looks like Spring Township's main water source is a well.

Is Aqua Penn still operating outside Milesburg?

Article says 300 gallons per minute, which shakes out to 432,000 gallons per day, to be purchased from Spring Tsp Water Authority. The water authority draws from a 24-acre reservoir on trout stream Kern Run, a trib to Middle Creek.

Spring Township Water Auth. serves about 1,000 people (http://www.elibrary.dep.state.pa.us/d ... 011001%20Spring%20Twp.pdf) and typically water resources organizations plan for 180 gallons of water per day per person, or current need of probably closer to 200,000 gallons than the straight math figure of 180,000 because of leaks, fire hydrant uses and such.

Kern Run looks to be pretty tiny, maybe 5 cubic feet per second (37 gallons per second ) or less in summertime (5 cfs X7 .48 gallons per cubic foot=37 gallons per second). Math (37ish gallons per secondX60 seconds per minute X 60 minute per hour X 24 hours) would shake out to 3.1968 million gallons per day in the creek.

That would put the residents needs plus the company's wants at about 600,000 to 630,000 gallons per day, or about, and very roughly, 15 to 18 percent of the total creek (presuming the 5 cubic feet per second estimate is accurate).

Not sure what this means for any trout fishing that goes on in Kern Run, but below the reservoir, I wouldn't count on the stream flowing fast and cold throughout the summer months.

I think a water company already draws, or used to draw, water from a building along Spruce Creek, which probably is taking/took the water from the creek. It fills/-ed tankers that go/went somewhere. Is this still in operation? How much damage does it/did it do to Spruce Creek?

Is/was this Nestle?

Anyhow, one in Spring Township sounds like a bad idea.
