Ice Mountain Operations Iced in Michigan

Nov. 26, 2003

Yesterday, a judge ordered the company that produces Ice Mountain bottled water to stop drawing water from wells in a Michigan county, saying the operation has damaged the environment.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by environmentalists who said the water-bottling operation has depleted neighboring lakes, streams and wetlands.

Ice Mountain is one of the most popular brands of bottled water in the Midwest. Its parent company is Nestle Waters North America, the maker of brands such as Poland Spring and Arrowhead.
