Opponents of a proposed Nestlé Waters North America bottling plant in Cascade Locks launched their campaign today, handing fish and wildlife officials petitions with 3,700 signatures from Oregonians against the project.

Nestlé's first Pacific Northwest plant would tap a nearby spring that supplies an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hatchery. The agency is evaluating whether replacing the spring water with Cascade Locks well water would harm the hatchery's fish or a creek the hatchery feeds into.
