New properties will provide natural buffer between well and development
HILLSBURGH, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s marketshare-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced it has purchased two properties adjacent to its existing production well.
The properties – the former Morette’s Furniture building and lands at 15 Station Street and a vacant 16-acre parcel at 14 Station Street – will be returned to a natural state.
“We purchased these properties to enhance the existing buffer between our production well and commercial and residential development in the village of Hillsburgh because we were concerned about future development and, with it, septic systems, encroaching on our water source,” explained Don DeMarco, Natural Resources Manager, Nestlé Waters Canada. “The first step in naturalizing the properties will be to undertake a sensitive demolition of the existing derelict factory buildings. This will improve the aesthetics for both community residents and visitors who use the adjacent rails-to-trails path.”
