Use of City of Guelph’s groundwater model will ensure the most robust analysis of Nestlé’s water takings at Aberfoyle and Erin

Guelph, Ont., March 9, 2018—Nestlé Waters Canada has signed an agreement to provide the City of Guelph with data to ensure that the groundwater model used for the application for renewal of its permit is the most comprehensive available.

As per the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change’s new technical requirements for water bottlers in the province of Ontario, Nestlé Waters Canada will be accessing the closest municipality’s Tier 3 groundwater model in order to complete our permit renewal applications for Aberfoyle and Erin.

“We are looking forward to providing the City of Guelph our data to refine their groundwater model. Nestlé Waters Canada has more than 17 years of reliable and independently reviewed data,” said Dr. Andreanne Simard, Nestlé Waters Canada’s Natural Resource Manager. “In doing so, we are ensuring that our permit renewal applications are backed by the best available science.” 

Nestlé Waters Canada is committed to protecting Ontario’s water resources to ensure the long-term sustainability of the groundwater in this region.
