Congressman Dan Kildee of Flint sent a strongly worded letter to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Thursday, opposing Nestle Ice Mountain's request to pump more groundwater out of a well near Evart.


He says his constituents have urged him to oppose the company's permit request to increase its groundwater pumping from its White Pine Springs well which is located between two coldwater trout stream tributaries of the Muskegon River.


Kildee said scientific experts have shown allowing Nestle to increase its withdrawal from the well would result in damaging impacts to the environment and to wildlife.
