If you live in the SE Portland area this is another great way you can voice your concern about the Nestle water bottling proposal for Oregon.
Many constituents have contacted Rep. Nosse’s office regarding the proposed Nestle Bottled Water Plant in Cascade Locks, expressing a number of concerns about it. Rep. Nosse understands the importance of protecting our public water, which is one of our most valued resources. At the request of many constituents he has written a letter to the ODFW Director expressing the many concerns of people in his district, but he knows that folks in SE Portland have many additional questions & concerns.
The Oregon Water Resources Department has regulatory authority over water rights transfers and is the state agency that will approve or deny these applications. OWRD’s public comment period on the project extends through May 14th, and Rep. Nosse understands that many busy working families don’t have time to find out how to submit comment to state agencies.
To make things convenient for his constituents, Rep. Nosse is holding an event on Saturday. Here are the event details:
When: Saturday, May 9th
Where: SEIU Local 49 (3536 SE 26th Ave, Portland, OR 97202)
Parking will be available, but we encourage using public transportation if at all possible. Information on the proposed plant will be available, as well as laptop stations and paper forms so people can easily & conveniently make their voice heard. The Nosse office & additional volunteers will also be available to take down folks’ input in greater detail for OWRD.
Protecting Oregon’s natural resources is a priority for Rep. Nosse, and he is always happy to provide resources for his constituents and to make having your voice heard in Salem as easy as possible.
If you have any additional questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Nosse office at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 453-0868.
