Hello. I do not support increasing or allowing new companies to take water for bottling. Plastic water bottles are terrible for the environment and are not recycled at a level which does not impact the environment. Instead, these bottles end up in our oceans choking sea life. By increasing the amount of water available for these businesses, the cheaper the bottles and cases of water become which only encourages consumers to purchase more for 'convenience' sake. I respect the government wants to promote and maintain jobs but, to do so at the expense of the environment is short sited.
