Protecting the Skagit from bottlers

In and around Anacortes, WA, Defending Water for Life campaigners continue to raise questions about the impacts of the proposed one-million square foot Tethys water bottling plant, including effects on local wetlands and salmon habitat, rerouting of traffic, and even whether the city has accurate information about ownership and boundaries of the proposed site. More global issues surrounding plastics pollution and the unsustainability of bottling, shipping and selling water are also on the public's mind.

Defending Water in the Skagit River Basin, part of Defending Water in Washington, has been keeping residents informed and encouraging the public to speak its mind on the project. You can read their latest newsletter online.
