Protesters Gather in Front of Nestle Water Bottling Plant in South Sacramento Trying to Stall Operations

Protesters Gather in Front of Nestle Water Bottling Plant in South Sacramento Trying to Stall OperationsCalifornia is struggling with its water situation as it goes through the fourth year of distressing drought which has affected the farmers badly, many of whom have been forced not to plant crops in their fields. That's not all communities who rely on water from wells have no or little to water to drink.

Lawmakers have been making serious efforts to save the state from turning into a desert by implementing stricter water regulations and disaster funding, but the question still remains whether their efforts are too small or too late to save the state.

Amidst the water crisis situation protesters with signs and props that appeared like torches assembled in front of the Nestlé water bottling plant.

The reason for their protest is that the company is using a huge amount of water to sell for profit, especially at this juncture when the state is going through a water crisis.

However, the company says in 2014, it used fifty million gallons of water from the Sacramento Municipal Water Supply and that is a small fraction of one percentage of total water which is demanded in the Sacramento city.

Activists supporting environmental and water rights blocked the entrances for the trucks not allowing them to enter the water bottling plant. It is not the first time that this kind of protest has been witnessed. Last year in October too similar scenes were observed.
