Defending Water in the Skagit River Basin newsletter online

There's been some strong community pushback to the idea of developing a massive water bottling plant in the city of Anacortes, WA, and you can read the latest news here. Defending Water in the Skagit River Basin reports on the recent public hearing before the Skagit County Board of County Commissioners, who were considering a bid by Tethys Co. to annex 11.15 acres to an urban growth area to allow the construction of the plant, while letters and essays by community members point out the dangers of low-wage bottling plant work and the impacts to ecosystems, economies and quality of life from the project.
