At the annual presentation on May 3, 2022, our commissioners held BlueTriton’s feet to the fire!
If the company does not come through with the conservation easement that was promised over 12 years ago, Chaffee County commissioners said pumping will cease in 2023 until that requirement is met!
Commissioners can be contacted:
Unbottle and Protect Chaffee County Water is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We formed to represent Chaffee County Citizens who united against renewal of a permit authorizing Nestle Waters to mine water from Ruby Mountain Springs. Citizens armed with common sense and an increasing knowledge about climate change and plastic pollution knew this was simply not a good operation, but we built a solid case based on Nestle’s permit non-compliance and broken promises.
